Foundation Events Raise Money for a Good Cause

The Foundation of the Wall and Ceiling Industry hosted fund-raising events in Vancouver during AWCI’s fall conference, and it involved a lot of fun and games. Here are the details:


Twenty-eight golfers played in the Foundation Golf Tournament at Furry Creek Golf & Country Club, which raised more than $10,000. Purchases of mulligans raised nearly $500 for AWCI CARES.


Here are the big winners of the golf tournament:

  • Winning Team: John Hinson, Mark Nabity, Tim Smith and Terry Westerman
  • Longest Drive: John Hinson
  • Closest to the Pin: Terry Westerman
  • Longest Putt: Todd Helfrich


Thank you to our sponsors:

  • National Gypsum
  • Association of Wall-Ceiling & Carpentry Industries of New York
  • BakerTriangle
  • EIFS Industry Members Association
  • Hunter Douglas Ceilings


The Foundation’s 50–50 raffle generated nearly $6,000 each for the foundation and AWCI CARES. The first-place winner was Steve Baker, the second ticket picked had Mike Weber’s name on it, and Mike Chambers was the third winner. All three donated their winnings to AWCI Cares.


AWCI CARES Game Day raised more than $2,000 with 30 registrants who spent some time playing games in the style of “Hollywood Game Night.” Thank you to the sponsors of this event: BakerTriangle, Liddle Bros. Contractors, Inc. and Ronsco, Inc.
