Illinois Association of Aggregate Producers Hosts Its Annual Golf Outing at WeaverRidge, Coyote Creek in Peoria

Wed October 14, 2020 - Midwest Edition #21
IAAP




A beautiful day welcomed 144 golfers to IAAP's Sep. 17 golf outing held at WeaverRidge and Coyote Creek golf clubs in Peoria, Ill. Due to the strong support of everyone attending, this outing raised $8,580 for the IAAP Political Action Committee. PIE Committee members sold 50/50 raffle tickets raising a total of $1,116 for the IAAP's Rocks, Minerals & Mining Workshop for Illinois teachers.

This golf outing offers a unique opportunity to have fun and visit with friends in the industry. Using a scramble format, the event proved to be highly competitive once again. In addition to golf, member companies sponsored challenge holes at WeaverRidge, and golfers at both courses could win numerous door prizes. The 50/50 raffle drawing, with a prize of $705, was claimed by Tony Fiorentini (Dimond Bros. Insurance), who donated half of it back to the PIE Committee.

Despite COVID-19 restrictions that prevented gathering for the traditional dinner and trophy awards ceremony, everyone agreed it was a really fine day to be playing golf.
