SEATTLE, Wash. – September 16, 2019 -- DCI Engineers raised more than $76,000 for local non-profit Childhaven during the firm’s 31st annual golf tournament at the Golf Club at Newcastle last month. About 400 attendees from the AEC industries attended the fundraising event which was called “Luau on the Links.” A combination of 75 DCI and Childhaven staff volunteered their time to coordinate the festivities.
Rhonda Smith, Childhaven Director for Corporate Relations and Community Engagement, spoke during the awards banquet. She reiterated how the day’s fundraising went toward Childhaven’s therapeutic programs offered in Seattle and Auburn, Washington. The programs are designed to build resilient children and families by preventing and healing childhood trauma. DCI Engineers has raised local money for the non-profit for 31 years because of Childhaven’s dedication to the community. Two of DCI’s principals served as Childhaven board members, Guy Conversano and Roger Heeringa. Their involvement and support to the non-profit has prompted staff volunteer participation during the tournament year after year.
The tournament’s first place foursome team winners included representatives from Coast Hospitality, GGLO, and Peter Sullivan Accounting. The second place foursome team winner was Jackson Main Architecture. The tournament’s premier sponsor was Berntson Porter & Company PLLC.
Many thanks to all our guests and sponsors who made the fundraising efforts a highlight for 2019!
