i2 Construction Raises $56K in Support of Brain Matters
Denver-based i2 Construction recently held its third annual Chipping in for Charities golf tournament. For the past three consecutive years, i2 Construction has organized and hosted a golf tournament to benefit a charity that i2 employees hold near and dear to them. This year’s socially distanced tournament was hosted to support the non-profit organization, Brain Matters, in which $56K in funds were raised.
“At i2, it is our people who come first. When we saw first-hand what an incredible organization Brain Matters was, we all agreed that they would be the one to benefit from our annual golf tournament,” said Scott Farrell, i2 Construction president.
The tournament took place on September 21, where 144 golfers gathered for a silent auction, games at each hole, and outdoor banquet. The golf ball cannon and attending professional long driver were major highlights from the day for guests. In the weeks leading up to the event, the tournament had quickly sold out demonstrating the depth of support for charity organizations within the community.
“The generosity of the i2 Construction team will live for years to come in the Denver metro area,” said Jillyan McKinney, Littleton Adventist Hospital CEO. “With their contributions, our community will have access to nationally renowned neurological care, from epilepsy and Parkinson’s Disease to brain tumors and strokes. Our families will benefit from their support.”
William Pearson, i2 Construction senior project manager, added, “I’m very honored that i2 has chosen a charity that is near and dear to my heart and my better half Jill. We were able to give back to something this year that really gave life to us.”
