North America – Playing golf for a good cause
For 25 years, the United Way Golf Tournament organized by the Autoneum plant in Bloomsburg, USA, has been attracting over 100 golf enthusiasts every year to play for a charitable purpose. From finding sponsors, coordinating participants and up to the closing ceremony – only thanks to the employees’ tireless efforts the event always turn out to be a huge success. The proceeds are donated to the “United Way” organization, which helps disadvantaged people in the local community. At last year’s tournament, the golfers raised an impressive amount of over 50 000 US dollars, which was used to support the local Salvation Army and Camp Victory, a camp for children with special needs.
