Aloha, OR. Frontier Communications raised in excess of $46K at its 2016 Annual Golf Tournament benefitting Providence Child Center for Medically Fragile Children. Funds were raised through sponsorships, foursome fees, contest participation and a silent auction.
Approximately 100 players (Frontier employees, vendors and customers) teamed up to support the cause.
Participants played 18 holes of golf at The Reserve Golf Course in Aloha, Oregon on September 14th before enjoying a catered dinner and listening to representatives from Providence speak about this worthy cause.
Frontier General Manager of Washington County, Jeanne Danielson (who also sits on the Board of Directors for Providence as immediate past chair), was responsible for putting the event together for the 6th consecutive year, with Frontier Director of Engineering Wally Riggs being instrumental in recruiting sponsors and securing vendor contributions.
“Frontier has been honored to host this tournament for the past six years, donating all contributions and proceeds to “Bill’s Kids” charity for Providence Child Center for Medically Fragile Children,” stated Danielson. “The work done by this facility is life-changing. At Frontier we know communication isn’t just about connecting people; it’s about engaging with and connecting our community.”
Providence Child Center is the only pediatric skilled nursing facility in the Pacific Northwest to provide 24-hour long-term, short-term, respite and end-of-life care to medically fragile children from infancy to 21 years.
All proceeds from this year’s tournament will go to Bill’s Kids Charity for Providence Child Center, which was founded by Bill Schonely who is most well-known as the voice of the Portland Trailblazers.
