If at first you don’t succeed…..GOLF, GOLF again!
…at least that was the mantra of golfers in American’s 6 (1/2!) Annual Customer Appreciation Classic Golf Tournament.
A little rain never hurt anyone right? Well if you were playing in American’s 6th annual Customer Appreciation Classic Golf Tournament, you might disagree (at least when it comes to hurting your golf game!).
American has been hosting our Annual Customer Appreciation Golf Tournament for the last six years to raise money for charity, and celebrate our valued customers. This year, American Disposal held its tournament at the Country Club of Fairfax, with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.
The original tournament was held on October 7th, but it didn’t take long for the tropical storm that was making its way up the coast to find us teeing off.
Though we braced for the weather; both American Disposal Services and the golf course thought we could still hold the tournament without the storms interfering…however we were proven wrong (and moreover) powerless by Mother Nature and the storms.
After playing just two holes, our golfers experienced torrential rain and blustering winds. Tournament coordinators and the staff at the Country Club of Fairfax were forced to call the game on account of the weather.
But you can’t keep American and our customers down! With so much golf left to play, we jumped at the opportunity to hold a make-up date for the tournament!
On October 28th, over 90% of the golfers who had come to the original game, returned for a beautiful day (perfect golf weather, filled with sunshine) to play in the 6 (and a half!) Annual Customer Appreciation Golf Tournament.
It was a true testament to the relationship American Disposal has with our customers and sponsors that most of our attendees came back and joined us for the make-up date.
Fun was had by all as we golfed, enjoyed some games, enjoyed the company, and after a long day; relaxed together for a delicious dinner in the lovely Country Club of Fairfax’s banquet room.
“It was a true testament to the relationship American Disposal has with our customers and sponsors that most of our attendees came back and joined us for the make-up date.”
Although our raffle prizes were announced at the initial (rather soggy) tournament, we were still able to award prizes to our longest drive and closest to the pin winners, as well as winners of the tournament itself.
At the end of the day we were all dry and happy; and American is proud to announce that together we raised $1,857.00 for the American Cancer Society!
We want to take one more opportunity to thank all our sponsors and customers for making this event possible by being such great sports and such wonderful company in both rain AND shine….until next year!
