2017 Charity Golf Tournament
The 2017 Charity Golf Tournament had a bit of a twist this year. As customers, vendors, and Blazer employees pulled into the Bear Dance Golf course, they discovered that the course had been fogged in. Players couldn’t find the flag on the first several holes, but as the morning progressed it turned into a great day for golf. During the Shotgun Scramble, players got the chance to win at several competitions, including closest to the line, longest drive, drive with Blazer prefabbed Drivers, etc.
After the 18 holes, everyone gathered at the clubhouse to eat and participate in the awards ceremony. $30,000 was raised from the tournament to support the Independent Electrical Contractors and the Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee.
2017 Pig Roast
The Pig Roast this year was a great success with 400+ people in attendance. We raised close to $700.00 for the Alzheimer’s Association with our 50/50 raffle. The winner of the raffle was Robert Turner from Pueblo Electrics. The Pig Toss was also a huge hit with everyone winning an ‘I Pigged Out’ Blazer t-shirt. Another successful event with good food and great company.
We appreciate everyone’s support and we look forward to another fantastic year.
An Early Cinco de Mayo
Blazer of Colorado Springs celebrated Cinco de Mayo a day early! On May 4th, we had a chicken fajita counter day. Salespeople from Hubbell Lighting, Hubbell Premise Wiring, Hubbell Raco and Hubbell Wiegmann had tables set up with their product displayed. All of the 150 attendees had an opportunity to sign up for the Making A Difference raffle. A lucky person is going to have an opportunity to pick a charity to donate $500. We are looking forward to our next Springs counter day in July.
Baseball Fever at Blazer
Baseball Fever was in full swing at Blazer Electric Supply Colorado Springs on Wednesday, April 12th. Over 100 people enjoyed different styles of hot dogs at the Atkore Baseball Fever Counter Day. The top dog of choice was the Chili Dog followed by the Chicago Style, New York Style and then Sissy Dog (Ketchup, Mustard, and Relish). Several customers won Rockies Baseball merchandise.
The next Colorado Springs counter day will be Thursday, May 4th just in time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
