San Diego Tees Off for a CauseContributor: Swinerton Blogger | November 07, 2013
This fall, Swinerton Builders San Diego held its biennial Swinvitational golf tournament. The San Diego division looks forward to this event every time it comes around, both for the fundraising efforts and the camaraderie it instills. All Swinerton partner companies are invited to sponsor the event, bringing a cross section of the entire construction industry to the tournament. Thanks to the game of golf, business partnerships are allowed to flourish in a nontraditional social environment.
The San Diego Swinvitational welcomed 124 participants from 33 different companies. The event was an unquestionable success thanks to the support received from key subcontractors and suppliers from both Swinerton Builders and Swinerton Renewable Energy. Because of the generosity of participants and sponsors, The Swinerton Foundation is able to donate money to the various charities and organizations it supports. In one of the most successful tournaments to date, the effort easily surpassed 2011’s fundraising totals and raised an estimated $85,000. Thanks to the high number of slices, hooks, and water hazards found by the players, The Swinerton Foundation netted an additional $3,000 in mulligan sales. A portion of the funds raised from the tournament will benefit two of The Foundation’s favorite organizations: The American Heart Association and The Ronald McDonald House.
The tournament was capped off by a post-round mixer, which included light appetizers, drinks, and networking for everyone involved. The sponsors were thanked for their contributions, and the tournament winners were awarded their prizes. This year’s event was won by Construction Innovations, who also had San Diego Operations Manager Garrett Cope on their team. Winning with an impressive 18-under-par round of 56, the team graciously donated its financial prize back to The Foundation.
