This year marked Swinerton Builders Hawaii team member’s initial participation in the Hawaii Chapter of NAWIC’s (National Association of Women in Construction) 21st Annual Golf Tournament. Held at the Pearl City Country Club, the women of Swinerton Builders Hawaii co-chaired the highly publicized event along with 14 other NAWIC members. Through their efforts, they solicited donations from more than 50 companies and attracted teams from all over the state to attend the annual event, drawing in 200 golfers. In addition to the division’s NAWIC members, project team members and senior management paired off with owners and architects for a full day of golf under the blue Hawaiian sky.
The event was a stellar success under the leadership of Office & Human Resources Manager Jennifer Creedon. The Swinerton team was heavily involved from well beyond the planning stages and closing ceremonies of the tournament—taking on a variety of tasks from event planning, tee-time registration, assisting various vendors on site, food preparation, supply runs, and event photography. The Swinerton Grillers (Mark Tacazon and Eric Teramae) were also in attendance to feed the hot and hungry golfers with juicy slices of seasoned rib eye steaks and sausage—so ono! To conclude the event, fellow NAWIC members Alyssa Kong and Kasey Barcelona emceed at the awards banquet to honor golfers with an impressive lot of cash and prizes. In total, Swinerton represented 11 teams at the tournament, along with a donation from The Swinerton Foundation. Together the team helped raise over $30,000—the largest amount ever raised in the NAWIC Hawaii Chapter! All proceeds will support future NAWIC Hawaii Chapter efforts.
Special mahalo to the Swinerton NAWIC Women: Cindy, Char, Deanna, Gail, Ruth, Mari, Leisha, Irene, Ka’ula, Sarah, and Regine, along with the project teams of the Hawaii division for exhibiting a high standard of excellence for Swinerton Builders!
