CEA Annual Golf Outing August 2, 2019

The Chicago Elevator Association (CEA) held their annual golf outing at the Gleneagles Country Club to benefit the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation (EESF). The event had a great day for the outing with plenty of sunshine for the golfers. All of the attendees were winners at this year’s charity event. A delicious dinner was provided to the attendees following the outing. The world class raffle with the industries finest prizes kept all the attendees in smiles.

The Chicago Elevator Open Champions of 2019 are from Team Urban Elevator/Vantage/VDA. Justin Richards, Nick Schenk, Matt Jackson, and Freddy Flores. Their final score was a 57 or -13 under par. Congratulations!


The event had a 50/50 drawing for the EESF. The CEA would like to Thank Brad Hunt of the Peelle Company, for helping with the collection of $1300 dollars for the drawing. Half went to the winner and the other half to the EESF.


This years EESF charity event was a huge success. The CEA Annual Golf Outing helped the EESF by raising $1500.00 dollars to further their mission.


The CEA would also like to thank our golf outing Committee. Glenn Duncan, Tom Przybyla, and Molly Cruz, from Parts Specialists, Inc., and Matt Dennett from RBN & Associates.


The golf outing was only successful due to the support of the sponsors.
