 Thank You All for Another Successful MA Young Agents Golf Tournament! (6/22/2022) 

Thank You All for Another Successful MA Young Agents Golf Tournament!

The Young Agents Committee wrapped up yet another successful Golf Tournament on June 15, once again hosted at Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth, MA. It was a pleasure to see old faces out on the range, network with industry partners, and raise money for numerous good causes.

Thanks to the many raffles available, players left with awesome prizes, including a Yeti cooler, a DeWalt tool combo kit, sporting event tickets, and much more. Aside from the success of the raffle and tournament prizes, we all were able to feel like winners after raising over $9,000 that will benefit Make-A-Wish MA/RI, and many other initiatives.

CHECK OUT ALL THE PICTURES FROM THE DAY HERE!  - Thank you to Little Dog Social Media for covering this momentous occasion!
