Gilbane Building Company hosted their first North Carolina Charity Golf Tournament at the Lonnie Pool Golf Course in Raleigh, North Carolina. The event raised funds and awareness for Fostering Bright Futures, a local program designed to help young adults in Wake County transition out of foster care programs and earn a degree or employable skill through Wake Technical Community College. This year the event, which attracted support and participation from a variety of local businesses, raised $40,000.
“I am proud to see all of the hard work and support from so many of our partners that is directly impacting our community,” said Paul Sullivan, Gilbane Building Company vice president and North Carolina business unit leader.
“We are so grateful for community partners like Gilbane,” says Matt Smith, executive director of the Wake Tech Foundation. “They understand our mission of providing education and training to the community – including those who have traditionally been left behind. This event generated much-needed funding for Fostering Bright Futures and raised awareness among many who will be important future advocates for this incredible program.”
All proceeds from the event will directly benefit Fostering Bright Futures, which offers financial support, career counseling and individual mentors to guide students to work towards a college degree.
