September 30, 2019 – More than 260 Sargent & Lundy employees participated in the firm’s 42nd annual Lundy Legends golfing fundraiser, which raised over $45,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago (BGCC).
The golf outing featured foursomes of Sargent & Lundy employees and officers who teamed up to compete for the coveted Lundy Legends Cup and red jacket. Team Bob Barnowski, including James Stirk, Gordon Johnson, Scott Veitch, and Brian Alger, was the winning team in this year’s tournament.
The event also features a “Beat the Executive” challenge, a time-honored tradition where employees make donations for a chance to participate in a ‘closest to the pin’ competition against top executives. This year’s executives included CEO Tom White, EVP Delfo Bianchini, SVP Tom Meehan, and SVP Vic Suchodolski.
The golf outing was followed by a fundraising dinner, where guests participated in a raffle. Prizes included: a golf bag, a Yeti cooler, a blutooth speaker, free rounds of golf, and various gift cards.
“The best part of Lundy Legends is seeing people with different levels of golf experience and job experience – people from all different parts of the business – come together for an important cause,” said event chair Matt Briscoe. “It’s a great team-building opportunity, and even better, it’s a great way to give back to our local community.”
Sargent & Lundy has supported the BGCC for many years in many different ways. Most recently, employees from the firm volunteered at the James R. Jordan Boys & Girls Club in celebration of National STEM Day, an event aimed at empowering local students to ignite a passion and curiosity in science, technology, engineering, and math.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Serving nearly 18,000 youth ages 6-18, the BGCC works to provide members with the emotional, educational, physical, and cultural resources that allow them to enjoy their childhood and eventually thrive in adulthood.
A special thank you to event chair Matt Briscoe and all who participated.
