20th Annual Golf Classic

The Sioux Falls offices of O'Connor Company, G & R Controls and Balancing Professionals hosted another successful golf tournament. Thanks to employees, manufacturers and customers for all of their efforts and generosity in donating prizes and sponsorships!

This year's event began on July 27, 2017 with a Cocktail/Social Hour held at Fernson Brewery, located on the north side of Sioux Falls. HVAC Elements personnel, manufacturer representatives and customers attended the social. The golf outing was held the following morning at Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort near Larchwood, IA. The day was enjoyed by 144 golfers and over a dozen of appreciated helpers on the golf course.

Again this year, we held numerous contests with payouts going to winners and the 2017 charity of choice, St. Francis House. CONGRATULATIONS to Josh Reasoner of Hamilton Engineering, this year’s putting contest winner! Proceeds from the sale of “Mulligans” and portions of the “Calcutta” pot and putting contest made our contribution to this very worthy cause $1465! O’Connor Group is generously matching the fundraising efforts making our grand total contribution $3000!!
