2017 Walk to End Alzheimer’s
This year Blazer led again in donations for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and surpassed last year’s donations! Blazer was able to raise $15,398, $3000 more than the previous year. Out of that $15,398, $2000 of that was matched by Blazer. Over all Blazer’s contributions were about 12% of the entire city’s contribution. A special thanks to all those at Blazer who helped contribute to make this happen and we look forward to seeing everyone next year!
2017 Trade Show and Steak Fry
We had over 200 customers and over 30 vendors attend the event this year. The wire off competitions drew a lot of customer attention with Craig Mabis officiating. We had 3 very happy customers walk away with Bronco game tickets as well as Will from Berwick going home with a big screen TV. This was our best event to date and it is all due to the customer service and loyalty of our people. A special thank you goes out to Amber for picking up the ball and assembling a great crew to get the preparation and day of event tasks all completed to a high level.
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.
