A Great Day to Raise Money for the Warrior Bonfire Program

On September 19th – i2 Construction, 144 golfers, and many sponsors had the honor of raising money for this year’s recipient, Warrior Bonfire Program. The program provides opportunities that improve the lives of the enemy combat-wounded veterans (Purple Heart recipients) on their lifelong journey of recovery and healing. They work to create activity-based, small group retreats that foster healing, build support communities, and transform lives.

The 5th Annual Chipping in for Charities Golf Tournament was held at the Pradera Golf Course in Parker. It could not have been a more beautiful day to play 18 holes. Golfers got to meet celebrity long driver Tommy Hug at hole 16, visit with corporate hole sponsors, and enjoy multiple games at holes throughout the course including a chance to win a 2010 Acura MDX at hole 8. Nick Wood with Centennial Leasing generously donated a car to giveaway, and one lucky golfer, Mark Floersch, won a new ride!

“These events remind you how much our industry and community are built on relationships,” says Scott Farrell, president of i2 Construction. “An absolutely perfect day with an incredible group of friends raising funds for the Warrior Bonfire Program.”

As the tournament wrapped up, golfers enjoyed an early dinner buffet in the clubhouse and were able to bid on numerous silent auction items including a Cale Makar signed hockey stick and puck, a trip to Belize, custom art from a local artist, and many other items.

Mike Foss, president of Warrior Bonfire Program joined in on Monday to greet golfers at hole 16. “What a wonderful event put on by the i2 Construction team; I was simply in awe! The generosity of i2, its employees, volunteers, sponsors, and golfers are truly amazing. The funds raised through this tournament will provide opportunities for at least 15 combat warrior Veterans, Purple Heart recipients, to participate in a Bonfire retreat and realize post-traumatic healing and growth. Thank you so much!”

i2 will formally be presenting the donation raised in October to the Warrior Bonfire Program. The total amount raised from the tournament has not been finalized yet, but the Chipping in for Charities Golf Tournament has raised $148,500 for charities over the last 4 years!
