Newton, MA The SIOR New England Chapter held its annual golf outing on May 17, 2023 at Brae Burn Country Club. It was also a joint event with Dacon as a charitable event. Approximately 40 SIORs and guests attended the golf outing and the reception. Jeremy Freid, chapter president welcomed everyone prior to the scramble kick out. Dacon Construction was the Gold Sponsor for this event. Other sponsors for SIOR this year include ARCO, Vantage Builders, CPM, Eastern Bank, Foxfield and RJ Kelly. It was a shotgun format that started at noon with boxed lunch and the opportunity to warm up at the driving range. The weather was cool but sunny. The groups were in foursomes with the chance to win prizes. The evening reception included drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Jeremy Freid then named the SIOR golf winners. The first place net went to Bob Cleary, Ross Miner, Parker Snyder and Steve Nohdren. The second place net winners went to Greg Klemmer, Josh Berman, Richard Coen and Brian Johnson. The first place gross winners went to Jim Boudrot, Tyler Capecci, Ben Knott and Mike Malincocnico. Each team member was awarded a gift card for the Brae Burn Pro Shop. The closest to the pin on hole 6 went to Phil DeSimone at 6 feet 2 inches. The closest to the pin on hole 8 went to Ben Knott at 11 feet 1 inch.

As the evening reception progressed, Dacon spoke about the charity that the golf outing was supporting. The charity Friendship Home supports adults with developmental disabilities on the South Shore from Plymouth to Fall River. Chuck Reilly, VP of business development at Dacon spoke about Dacon and the Friendship Home charity. He has been a long-time SIOR corporate member and thanked Rob Nahigian, SIOR for persuading him to have Dacon join as a corporate member. Reilly then had Lauren Nowicki, chief communication officer at Dacon, speak about Friendship Home and she played a video about the house operations. Friendship Home is dedicated to providing programs and services designed to enhance the emotional, behavioral and social well-being of children, adolescents and adults. They offer social activities, respite and job training with developmental disabilities. Friendship has a house in Norwell that totals 14,000 s/f. It can serve up to 70 people. 

She stated that 2,400 lives in the South Shore are intellectually challenged. Friendship Home will train 56 new people this year for jobs from their donations during this event. Then Dacon and SIOR donated a $5,000 check to Friendship Home. The event then ended at 6 pm.

We want to thank our sponsors and Bob Cleary who arranged this event at his club. Also thank you to our chapter administrator Jessica Spano for organizing and working the event.
