IECRM Annual Golf Tournament Raises Funds to Benefit Veterans

LAKEWOOD, Colo. — On September 11th, Independent Electrical Contractors Rocky Mountain (IECRM) held its annual golf tournament at Fox Hollow Golf Course in Lakewood to celebrate the IECRM skilled trade training facility and construction-focused trade association. The annual golf tournament is a fundraiser that involves professionals and companies who support IECRM and its mission of advancing America’s energy contractors and the IECRM Veteran’s Committee.

Northglenn Winlectric won First Place in the tournament, with Consolidated Electrical Distributors (CED) coming in a close Second Place. The “Most Honest Team” award went to Crum Electric Supply, an electrical products distributor. The annual golf tournament is a fundraiser that involves professionals and companies who support IECRM and its mission of advancing America’s energy contractors and the IECRM Veteran’s Committee.

Players donated over $3,000 at two fundraising holes, and 100% of the proceeds were dedicated to IECRM Veteran’s Committee. A big thank you to Northern Electric, Inc. for being the premiere sponsor of these holes. The funds will be used for community outreach and career transition support for US Veterans. The IECRM Veteran’s Committee members believe that through fellowship and education of transitioning military personnel, they can advance career-minded veterans with electrical and energy profession opportunities located in the Rocky Mountain region.

“The Veteran’s Committee has 14 active participating members. All members are dedicated to helping our veterans, from participation at military job fairs, educating other veteran groups, working with membership, and recently working one-on-one with a few veterans in resume building and making introductions to other IECRM members for possible employment. It is a distinct pleasure to be part of such an energetic group of professionals,” said Dave Jensen, US Marine Corps Veteran, X.O. of IECRM’s Veteran’s Committee and the current Branch Manager for North American Video.

18 volunteers from AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) joined IECRM staff early on the morning of the tournament to assist in the set-up, break-down, and the raising of funds for veterans efforts. AmeriCorps VISTA is a national service program founded in 1965 to fight poverty in America. Its members serve at projects under the grant awarded to the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center (CNDC). CNDC’s mission is to foster the development of a healthy and vibrant nonprofit sector in Colorado by enhancing the effective and efficient use of community resources and supporting the development of charitable projects and nonprofits.
