Golf outings celebrate customers, support important causes
Each year, PPC Lubricants holds customer appreciation golf outings corresponding to regional office locations: Western PA (celebrating its 10th year), Eastern PA (celebrating its 5th year), Maryland (celebrating its 10th year), and, for the first time this year, Central PA. Outings were held at the following locations: Cranberry Highlands Golf Course, the Timbers at Troy, Honeybrook Golf Club, and Cool Creek Golf Club.
These outings usually consist of great weather (we get pretty lucky in that regard!), refreshments, camaraderie, raffles, and great rounds of golf with PPC employees, vendors, and customers.
As part of PPC’s philanthropic efforts, these outings also raise money for AdoptaPlatoon. AdoptaPlatoon supports deployed troops by on-going care packages to improve quality of life and raising morale for those serving overseas in the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corp, Coast Guard and Special Forces. Founded in 1998, AdoptaPlatoon is a nonprofit 501C-3 and a PPC charity of choice as part of our golf outing fundraising efforts.
Attendees of the golf outings contribute to AdoptaPlatoon via the purchase of mulligans and chances to win a putting contest. PPC matches all donations made by golf outing participants.
After the fourth and final golf outing held in Central Pennsylvania, PPC Lubricants President Dave Klinger unveiled the final total that would be donated to AdoptaPlatoon, courtesy of PPC and our customers: $19,000.
Above all else, customers drive what we do. “Why we’re here,” said Klinger, “is because of the customer. Because you’re here, we have a job, and we are consistently pushed and inspired to do better.”
Thanks to our amazing customers for helping us raise money for this worthy cause. We’ll see you on the links in 2020!
