A huge shout out to our sponsors this year. From the Bloody Mary's, drinks on the course, to the dinner table, everyone was fully hydrated and ate well throughout the day.
Enjoy the snapshots below and be on the lookout for our next event. Thank you all for your continued support and as I speak for the entire Board, we look forward to seeing you at our next eventπŸ˜ƒ.
Thank you to Silvercote's National Accounts Manager, Robert Tiffin, for generously donating his time and monies as one of our Exclusive Hole Sponsors at this year's golf outing.
Robert was quick with dispensing the Fireball to anyone brave enough and/or needing some additional confidence out there.
We all know golf can be a pretty frustrating sport at times, so Thank You again Robert & Silvecote for elevating our coping mechanisms last week at Bunker Hill πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
