TECH NEEDS PRESS RELEASE
August 18th, 2014 marked the 8th Annual OI Golf Classic hosted by Techneeds at the Atkinson Country Club, in Atkinson, NH. All 144 golfers were in great spirits as they teed off at 7:30am. Each year Techneeds and The Gudek Family host a four-some golf tournament to raise funds for the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation (OIF). OI is a brittle bone disease that is estimated to affect between 25,000 and 50,000 individuals in the US alone. Kenneth Gudek, who is an OI patient himself, sits on the Board of Directors at the OI Foundation, is Treasurer for the OI Foundation and co-owns Techneeds (along with his brother, Stephen Gudek Jr.), says this of the event:
“Every year we host this event we are more and more impressed by the generosity of friends, family, and the many business owners who give their time and money to support the OI Foundation. This year we raised more than we ever have. The $63,500 we raised will go directly to support families affected by OI, and to help fund research for a cure.”
Each year the event features an 18-hole tournament, a lunch buffet, followed by a silent auction and a raffle, where local businesses generously donate items and gift certificates. Next year’s tournament is scheduled for Monday, August 17th, 2015. Contact Jessica Simone for more information (JSimone@techneeds.com)
