22nd 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 25, 2019 with a Cocktail/Social Hour held at JJ’s Wine & Spirits 3.0, located on the south 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. The day was enjoyed by 142 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 charity of choice, The Hezekiah House. CONGRATULATIONS to Chris Trudeau of Midwest Boiler Company, 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 $1,213! HVAC Elements is generously matching the fundraising efforts making our grand total contribution $2,426!!
