WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (May 19, 2016) – Suffolk Construction, one of the largest building contractors in Florida, recently held its 10th annual charitable golf tournament at PGA National Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. The event raised a record-breaking $200,000 for The Giving Circle, a long-time grassroots fundraising group led by Suffolk employees to support friends, family and subcontractors in times of need.
“During the past 10 years, the annual Suffolk golf tournament has raised nearly $1 million for our local nonprofits, and it is fitting that in its 10th year, we surpassed our goal and had the most successful event yet,” said Suffolk’s president and general manager Jeffrey A. Gouveia, Jr. “It is amazing to see the Suffolk family and partners come together to support loved ones and subcontractors who fell on hard times by raising money for The Giving Circle.”
More than 250 golfers, including more than 35 industry trade partners, attended the tournament and enjoyed a kickoff breakfast, a shotgun round of golf on two beautiful courses and an awards luncheon. Throughout the day, attendees were also given the opportunity to hear more about The Giving Circle organization.
