IIBEC Colorado Chapter “Early Fall” Golf Tournament Held to Provide Student Scholarships

By IIBEC Colorado Chapter Immediate Past President Pete Hovanec

The IIBEC Colorado Chapter would like to thank their sponsors and attendees for making the 12th  Annual “Early Fall” Golf Tournament held on October 8 at the Fox Hollow Golf Course a success!  The weather was perfect, with a high of 84 degrees.  Prizes were awarded at the team and individual levels for longest putt, longest drive, and closest to the pin.   After the outing, attendees enjoyed a BBQ boxed lunch while safely social distancing at the Fox Hollow East Patio.

The chapter thanks its four platinum sponsors, B & M Roofing, Empire Roofing, Rocky Mountain Reps, and Clark Rheem and Associates, Inc., as well as their bronze sponsors, Flynn Denver, and Derbigum Americas, for their support.

Proceeds from this annual tournament assist the chapter in providing for scholarships for the University of Colorado Boulder, Colorado State University, University of Wyoming, and Colorado School of Mines.  The chapter also makes a donation to the Colorado Roofing Association and the RCI-IIBEC Foundation.
