On Monday, July 16, Household Goods hosted its third annual Home in One golf tournament. The event drew 67 returning and new golfers to Concord Country Club for day of great golf for a great cause.
Thanks to the support of many people, we raised over $40,000 through the tournament. This means that Household Goods is able to help 200 families by providing the furniture and household items they need to make a home.
This year’s lead sponsors were Green International Affiliates, Inc., Westford, Clean Out Your House, Waltham, and the Kermisch family.
The 18-hole round of golf was followed by dinner and an awards ceremony for top golfers. On the green, golfers had the opportunity to compete in a longest drive contest, as well as a hole-in-one challenge that had participants shooting for a Toyota Camry, sponsored by Acton Toyota of Littleton.
Household Goods extends our deepest gratitude to our Home in One Golf Tournament sponsors who helped to make this tournament a success. In addition to this year’s lead business sponsors, Green International Affiliates, Inc. and Clean Out Your House, Inc., the event was also supported by the following businesses: Middlesex Savings Bank, Kistler & Knapp of Acton, MA, Sudbury Design Group, Novaya Real Estate Ventures, Middlesex Savings Bank, BAE Systems, Barrett Sotheby’s International Realty, Enterprise Bank, The Monument Group Companies, and G W and Wade, LLC; as well as many generous individuals who came together to play in the tournament and support Household Goods. Acton Toyota was the Hole-in-One Sponsor, providing a Toyota Camry as the signature prize.
The Home in One committee included Barbara Howland, Pauline McCormack, Mimi Deck Rutledge, Melissa Saalfield, Sally Savelle, and Audrey Trieschman of Concord, Peg Gladstone and Beth Neeley Kubacki of Carlisle, and Priscilla Gannon of Andover. Karl Trieschman, Concord, enthusiastically led an auction to fund a need, telling the bidders that Household Goods can furnish a home for a family of four for only $200 and encouraging them to fund from one to five households; players came together to support this need, raising $8,000 in the auction.
Plans are already in the works for the 4th annual Home in One tournament, to be played at Concord Country Club on Monday, September 23, 2019. If you would like to be part of this very special event, please contact Household Goods Executive Director, Sharon Martens, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
