Aiken, S.C. - Savannah River Remediation (SRR) scored well at the annual United Way Golf Tournament by raising nearly $8,000 for local agencies.
With approximately 100 SRR employees and their family and friends at Houndslake Country Club, the tournament participants raised approximately 15 percent more money than last year’s tournament earnings. The proceeds will benefit the 2016 SRR Employee United Way campaign.
The amount of employee participation and increased sponsorship took the tournament earnings to the next level, said Thomas Yamamoto, the 2016 SRR Untied Way Golf Tournament Chairman.
“With the help of the tournament planning team and the participants, we were able to enjoy a fun, meaningful tournament that will benefit our community,” Yamamoto said. “It was evident the SRR employees who participated came to the tournament to give, and they exceeded our expectations.”
Employee donations were raised by golf entry fees, breakfast donations, mulligan purchases, and beverage donations. Corporate sponsors and community businesses gave donations as tournament sponsors, hole sponsors, and for prize gift donations.
Tom Foster, SRR President and Project Manager, said fundraisers are an integral aspect to the United Way campaign season, both for the employees and the Company.
“Throughout the campaign season, I’ve watched teams of SRR employees come together to raise money for those in need in our communities,” Foster said. “This spirit of teamwork and giving is part of what makes the SRR campaign successful.”
SRR is the liquid waste contractor at the Savannah River Site for the U.S. Department of Energy. 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 URS Professional Solutions.
