This year, on August 1st and 2nd, Wieland Diversified Pro-Am Golf Tournament was once again hosted at Quaboag Country Club. Diversified has always made an effort to be part of the community and this year we decided to make this a charity event by raising money for Shriners Hospitals for Children in Springfield. The event raised over $18,000 in our first year and we could not be happier that we had such an overwhelmingly positive response. We were invited to the hospital later in the month for a check presentation, where we met and spoke with hospital administrators, nurses, and Shriners.
“Shriners Hospital makes such a difference in children’s lives and Diversified Metals saw an opportunity to help this fantastic organization further their mission. Not only was the community supportive of this great cause, but they helped us raise over $18,000 in our first year of fundraising. We could not have done it without our amazing employees who organized the event, our generous sponsors, and all of the individuals who donated. We look forward to continuing to raise money, and awareness, for such a special cause,” stated Ken Hamel, President, Diversified Metals.
“The generosity of Ken Hamel, the Wieland Diversified team, corporate sponsors, and individuals is a testament to their community spirit and commitment to making a difference in the lives of children. For 90 years this type of community support has enabled Shriners Hospital to fulfill its mission of providing hyper specialty medical and surgical care to children regardless of the families’ ability to pay. The hospital staff is extremely grateful for this generous donation and the awareness it has brought to our facility,” stated H. Lee Kirk, Hospital Administrator, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Springfield.
