In its third annual Golf Outing on Aug. 17, International Enginneering & Manufacturing, Inc. (IEM), maker of Woody’s traction products, raised more than $10,000 for Pink Ribbon Riders, bringing its three-year running-total to just short of $24,000.
The event was held at Beech Hollow Golf Course in Freeland, Mich., and 120 people participated. Players were treated to goodie bags filled with items donated by sponsors and a chicken dinner after the tournament. Players were also given the opportunity to win a $10,000 Hole-In-One prize and other giveaways donated to the event.
K-C Welding took home the $480 first-place prize, while TechMet Carbides earned $260 by placing second for the second year in a row. The TechMet Carbides team was also the skins winner, and the team donated all $800 of its winnings back to the Pink Ribbon Riders. Team Wixon, the 2011 winners, placed third and took home 2013 Woody’s hooded sweatshirts.
Local breast cancer patient and recipient of a $500 Pink Ribbon Riders gift card, Keisha Brown and her 6-year-old daughter joined the participants for dinner.
“This is my second year participating in the Woody’s golf outing to benefit Pink Ribbon Riders. What made this year’s outing more exciting for me was the amount of race teams that stepped up to help Woody’s & Pink Ribbon Riders raise money for a great cause! I will continue to be a part of this outing and a sponsor to help raise money for the Pink Ribbon Riders,” Ron (Rocket) Janose of Steelcase Inc. said.
