On Thursday, September 13th, Nexus sponsored the Third Annual NorCal Charity Golf Tournament at Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton, California. All proceeds from the tourney, more than $10,000, were donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. The Wounded Warrior Project provides programs and services to severely injured service members during the time between active duty and transition to civilian life.
Although the tournament was held for a serious cause, the more than fifty customers and Nexus employees and business partners (Cisco, EMC, VMware, Ironport, NEC, Intelepeer, Isilon, and Glue Networks) enjoyed a great day, great golf, great people, and great fun. There were prizes for the winners of the flighted four-person scramble, putting and chipping contests (with plastic practice balls no less!), closest to the pin and longest drive competitions, and lots of cold beverages to keep players happy and refreshed.
Winners included Foursome 1B: Steve Benvenuto, Sean Bhola, Mike McFall, Troy Treto and Foursome 16A: Anthony Gomes, Rhonda Gomes, Bob Christiansen, and Dave Fry. Congratulations, all!
Golf was followed by a Technology Fair and silent auction for sports memorabilia, trips, golf equipment, and other desirable items. Everyone went home with something – even if it was just the memory of a very special day that helped some very special people. (To refresh that memory, check out photos from the event at our Facebook page: facebook.com/nexusisinc )
Our sincere thanks go to everyone who helped make the event a success – our employees from the Northern California office, our business partners who sponsored holes and provided prizes, and our customers who gave generously of their time and money. We hope to see all of you again next year!
