Last Friday was another amazing day for our Team as we gathered our friends and supporters at the Summerville Country Club’s Miler Golf Course for our 6th Annual Lowcountry Firefighter Support Team Golf Tournament. All funds raised as a result of this event will support our mission of taking care of our firefighters, EMS personnel, 911 Telecommunicators, and their families.
There are so many people to thank for making this year a record-breaking event. First, thank you to our twenty-one teams who came out to play, our friends, Lee & Trae Ray, of Country Club Catering for a great venue, our event main sponsor, the Steinberg Law Firm, LLC of Goose Creek, our breakfast sponsors, Panera Bread and McDonald’s, our Backdraft BBQ lunch sponsor and our signage sponsor, Laura Meehan, of Signs ASAP in Summerville Corner, Seacoast Supply for providing our trophies from ABC Trophies in Summerville and ServiceMaster for finishing off the day with their ice cream truck. Also, thanks to the dozens of businesses, friends, and supporters who sponsored holes and donated items for our raffle and auction.
Also thanks to our teammates and friends, Marci-Jo, Haley, Amanda, Savannah, Stephanie, Jeremiah, James, David, Tim, and Lee, who came out to work the event and keep things running smoothly all day. And, a special mention to our Auctioneer, Keri Scougale, who kept the bidding and the boys fired up all afternoon.
We congratulate the Pine Forest Team 1 for finishing first, Pine Forest Team 2 for second place, and AKD of Charleston for claiming third place. Also, our own Lee Hopkins took home the trophy for the Longest Drive with a blast to parts unknown and a special mention goes to our good friends of the Mt. Pleasant Fire Department for accepting, (in good spirits, we hope) the “Dead Ass Last Place” Bobble Butt Trophies for finishing “Dead Ass Last”!
Hope to see everybody again next year!
