The NPCA Foundation hosted a golf tournament Oct. 29 in conjunction with NPCA’s 56th Annual Convention in Colorado Springs, Colo. More than 80 golfers took on The Broadmoor’s East Course for the tournament, which also included a putting contest, a long drive contest and a closest to the pin contest.
The winning foursome for the best-ball scramble was Ron Sparks, Tommy Harreld, Andy Wieser and Drew Wieser, who combined for 15-under.
Finishing second at 9-under was Stephen Suleski, Jon Leavell, Paul Bilson and Asher Kazmann. Two groups scored 7-under to tie for third. The first group was Shannon Hayhurst, Brad Hyronimus, Kevin Book and Bob Carter.
The other was Robert Bacarella, Mike McGuane, Eric Mosier and David Savant.
Longest drive winners were Aaron Ausen and Suzanne Runion, while Mike McGuane took closest to the pin.
Winning the putting contest was Pat Mulhall, who drained a 40-foot try to earn a customized Foundation golf bag.
A special thanks goes to all of the sponsors and golfers for their support. Their generosity allows the Foundation to continue its mission to advance the precast industry through grants to universities for precast concrete curriculum, scholarships, internships opportunities and more.
“The Foundation Golf Outing was a tremendous success,” NPCA Foundation Chairman Aaron Ausen said. “It was great to see everyone out on the beautiful course enjoying the scenery and challenging golf. The money raised is greatly appreciated and will aide in the Foundation’s mission of infusing precast in colleges and universities and developing the workforce for tomorrow.”
