LONDON, ONTARIO – NA Engineering Associates Inc.’s Annual Golf Tournament passed a significant milestone this past week, raising more than $500,000 for local charities since the tournament’s inception in 1996.
“Usually in golf it’s low numbers that you want to see – but we’re absolutely thrilled with this,” said Nick Aroutzidis, the firm’s President and Founder. “It’s a testament to the work of the volunteers and the organizers from our team. We’re very proud of all of them.”
The tournament has raised more and more money since it began. The grand total raised by this year’s tournament was about $32,000. Every year, 100% of the proceeds have been donated to a variety of Ontario charities. This year was no different.
“One charity that we’re supporting this year is the Teresina Larizza Charities Foundation,“ said Lindsay King, the Tournament Organizer and a Staff Member with NA Engineering Associates Inc. “They provide underprivileged and seriously ill children with things to make life a little brighter. They do incredible work and we’re proud to support them.”
Since being founded in Stratford, the firm and its leadership have made fundraising and community engagement a priority. The firm has supported Ontario charities with both money and time for more than 20 years.
Aroutzidis was quick to mention the generosity of the donors that support the tournament, noting that Scotiabank, Scotia Wealth Management, Aecon Buildings, and Bumstead Insurance Ltd. were all major financial supporters of the tournament this year. He also credited the success of the event to sponsors, volunteers, hosts, and the staff of NA Engineering Associates Inc.
“We donate our time and our money everywhere that we work. It’s part of our corporate philosophy,” said Aroutzidis. “You have to give back to your community.”
