With Summer right around the corner, it’s time to start planning our annual golf tournament, the Con-struction Industry Summer Open (CISO). For over 19 years, Worcester CSI has raised scholarship money for college students with an affiliation to CSI and the Architecture/Engineering/Construction field.
Two scholarships of $750/year for 4-5 years (depending upon de-gree) are offered in the name of two of our charter members. The Michael J Lapomardo scholarship is offered to students accepted into a college degree program related to a member of a construction-oriented professional organization or a past participant in the CISO and the Edward Healy scholarship to students meeting these require-ments but pursing an education specifically in the A/E/C field. If you’ve got a relative in college or on their way, consider applying. You can find the application on our website at http:csiworcester.com/ and the deadline for applying is June 30, 2018.
Don’t have any college-aged relatives? Why not participate in the golf outing? Each year roughly 100 golfers show up at Heritage Country Club in Charlton to knock balls around, win door prizes and eat a heckuva steak, all in the interest of raising money for the scholarship fund. This year the tournament will be on July 27, 2018, and registration forms are available on the website with the scholarship applications. You don’t need to field a foursome – we can build a team of single players for you.
If you don’t play or can’t make it, you can still support the kids. We are always looking for volunteers to help with registration and the sale of raffle ticket out on the greens. Donations of prizes, small and large, make for an audacious after-dinner giveaway MC’d by Mark Lapomardo. Sponsorship packages are also very well appreci-ated from companies and private parties alike, and there are several tiers of giving available. The sponsorship form is also available on the website.
So go print off the documents before you forget – we guarantee you’ll have a blast!
