Manchester, N.H.—Despite the pandemic’s forced cancellation of its largest annual fundraiser, CCA Global Partners raised a net of $137,500 to support the Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF) this past year.
The 18th annual Alan Greenberg Charity Golf Tournament, like many special events, was forced to take a raincheck in 2020. Nevertheless, the flooring community came together to make a difference for peers facing difficult times.
During a typical year, the annual golf tournament brings together business owners, manufacturers, distributors and other industry folks for a fun-filled day of networking and fellowship. Since 2020 was anything but “typical,” CCA said it opted for a safer alternative.
While floor covering industry participants anxiously await the 2021 event scheduled to take place on Sept. 22, 2021, the CCA Global Partners team has prepared an extraordinary commemorative golf book. The book will feature inspiring stories, golf tips from its resident pros and plenty of walks down memory lane.
Charlie Dilks, chief product officer at CCA Global Partners and chairman of the FCIF board, said 2020 was a time for creative solutions; a time when the charity’s mission mattered more than ever. “After facing cancellation of the FCIF’s annual fundraiser, we knew we needed to think outside the box,” he noted. “The CCA team stepped up, and through the generosity of our vendors and partners, we received donations to assist the foundation in lieu of an event this year. The money raised will go a long way toward helping those in need in the floor covering industry.”
Since 2003, the FCIF, via generous peer contributions, has enriched the lives of many individuals. Thanks to the ongoing support within the flooring industry during this unprecedented time, it will now be no different.
