December 13, 2017 – Sargent & Lundy celebrated its 40th Annual Lundy Legends Golf outing benefiting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago (BGCC). The event featured foursomes of Sargent & Lundy employees and officers who teamed up to compete for the coveted Lundy Legends Cup and Red Jacket. This year, nearly 250 golfers from across the company participated in golf, dinner, and fundraising. Team Barnowski, including Vinton Trowbridge, Tracy Kabeshita, Gordon Johnson, James Stirk, Scott Veitch and led by CIO Bob Barnowski, won this year’s tournament.
The “Beat the Executive Challenge” was a popular event, with CEO Tom White and executives Jack Daly, Tom Behringer, and Vic Suchodolski stationed at par-3 holes. Challengers made donations for a chance to get closer to the pin than the executive and win a prize.
Other fundraising efforts included split the pot, a raffle, and a silent auction. Through the event and donations from individuals across the company, the event raised over $47,000 for the BGCC.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago provides local clubs that give young people a safe place to learn, grow ongoing relationships with caring adult professionals, and benefit from a well-rounded lineup of structured and tested programs. Serving nearly 17,000 youth ages 6-18, BGCC works to provide members with the emotional, educational, physical, and cultural resources that allow them to enjoy their childhood and eventually thrive in adulthood.
A special thank you to outing chair Matt Briscoe.
