PCL Civil Constructors is a construction company that focuses on building bridges. Back in April, they also built a pretty big check for the United Way.
The company has had a golf tournament for United Way Suncoast about every 18 months since 2010. The regular outing brings in people from the construction industry from around the country.
It also brings in a lot of money.
The most recent tournament on April 24 at Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club, brought in more than $70,000. Combined, their tournaments have raised more than $250,000 for the charity.
“A big part of our culture at PCL, and our corporate vision, is giving back to the communities that we work in, and lending our time, talent and treasure to those in need,” said Mark Eveld, a senior estimator with the company and tournament chair.
The record-setting total raised this year was helped by a strong turnout (144 golfers) and more than 60 corporate sponsors, Eveld said.
