Each year our industry works together planning the annual golf tournament and raising funds to benefit the local community.

In 2020, $30,000 was raised to help Hugs for Mito, The Play Brigade, who work to create opportunities for inclusive play, recreation, and sports where everyone can participate and belong, regardless of age or ability, and the PHCC of MA Scholarship Fund.
