Gilbane charity golf classic scheduled

PROVIDENCE - Plans are completed for Gilbane's 7th annual Charity Golf Classic to be held on May 19 at the Wannamoisett Country Club in East Providence.

The event brings together construction trades, industry partners, business community members and Gilbane employees all golfing their way toward a common goal to support local nonprofit organizations in Rhode Island.

In addition to the charity focus of the event, excellence in safety awards are presented to subcontractors who meet strict criteria while working with Gilbane on area construction projects.

Proceeds from last year's sold-out event were distributed to 28 organizations throughout Rhode Island.

"Thank you to all of our sponsors along with our partners, subcontractors, trades members and other participants who helped us raise over $63,000 through this fun event and enabled us to give back to the communities we call home," said John Sinnott, vice president of Gilbane's Rhode Island business unit.

The top three benefactors included Rebuilding Together, Hasbro Children's Hospital, and The Station Fire Memorial Foundation.¬?Representatives from each accepted the donations on behalf of their organizations.

Companies that sign up for a bundled sponsorship by April 4 will be eligible for a chance to win a foursome in the 2015 Gilbane Charity Golf Classic valued at $2,500.

Anyone interested in reserving a foursome and/or learning about sponsorship opportunities should contact Susan Dias, executive assistant, at Gilbane, by calling 401-456-5447.
