Barnwell, S.C.—KronotexUSA, one of the leading U.S. laminate manufacturers, dedicated its employee golf tournament to honor a recently deceased employee. The Dean Scarbeary Memorial Golf Tournament for Charity is scheduled for June 27 and has already raised more than $7,500.
Scarbeary, receiving lead at KronotexUSA’s laminate flooring plant here, was one of the organizers of the annual employee golf tournament and worked at the plant for nine years.
The funds raised will be donated to the Barnwell County First Responders who tried to save Scarbeary during the house fire that claimed his life. “Our company has put down deep roots in Barnwell since building our 575,000-square-foot facility here in 2005,” said Jeff Martin, human resources manager for KronotexUSA. “We see this as just another way to thank those in our community who tried to help one of our own.”
