Suffolk businesswomen present donations – The Suffolk News-Herald
Suffolk Businesswomen held their second annual golf tournament at Sleepy Hole Golf Course on October 1. The tournament was a huge success thanks to sponsors and the dedication of President Jennifer Simpson and Co-President Veronica Thompson.
Over the years, Suffolk businesswomen have given back to the community over $300,000 through their fundraising events.
Simpson, Thompson and all the Suffolk businesswomen presented checks for $20,000 when the group reunited in January 2022 at the Hilton Garden Inn Suffolk Riverfront. Charities that received the proceeds were: Suffolk News-Herald Cheer Fund, Genieve Shelter, CAPS, Suffolk Christian Fellowship Ministry, Suffolk Humane Society, Boys & Girls Club of Suffolk, Suffolk Special Olympics, Out of the Darkness, Edmarc, One27 Inc., Horton Couronnes and the SBW Alzheimer team.
The SBW thanked its major sponsors, Farmers Bank and Farmers Bank Home Mortgage, for their second year of sponsoring the golf tournament. Additionally, they thanked Bayside Concrete, Chorey & Associates Realty, City of Suffolk Economic Development, Freedom Street Partners, Sal’s Pizza & Pasta, Evans Delivery, Glenn Development, Mason’s Grill & Smokehouse, Producers Peanut Co. Inc., Southern Bank, Appraisal Company of Virginia, M&M Hospitality Group and Langley Federal Credit Union to also be sponsors.
SBW also recognized all of the companies that donated prizes, hole sponsors and non-member volunteers who contributed to the success of the tournament.
The SBW will soon publish the tournament date for 2022.
