Aiken, S.C. - Savannah River Remediation (SRR) employees gave big at the annual United Way Liquid Waste Golf Tournament by raising over $7,000 for local agencies.
With approximately 100 SRR employees, their families, and friends at Mount Vintage Golf Club, the players raised $7,150. The proceeds will benefit the 2017 SRR Employee United Way Campaign.
Employee participation and sponsorship exceeded the committee’s tournament earning expectation, said Thomas Yamamoto, the 2017 Liquid Waste United Way Golf Tournament Chairman.
“The energy from the tournament planning committee and the participants showed in giving at this year’s event,” Yamamoto said. “The SRR employees who participated came to the tournament to give, and they exceeded our expectations.”
Earnings were raised by entry fees, breakfast donations, mulligan purchases, and a putting contest. Corporate sponsors and community businesses gave donations as tournament sponsors, hole sponsors, and prize sponsors.
Tom Foster, SRR President and Project Manager, said fundraisers are an integral aspect of the United Way campaign season, both for the employees and the Company.
“I’ve witnessed the SRR workforce come together to participate and give back in a big way to the many fundraisers throughout this campaign,” Foster said. “This spirit of comradery and selflessness is part of what makes the SRR campaign impactful for our communities.”
SRR is composed of a team of companies led by AECOM with partners Bechtel National, CH2M, and BWX Technologies. Critical subcontractors for the contract are AREVA, Atkins, and AECOM N&E Technical Services.
