Blanco Tackabery was proud to support the G&B energy “Irons in the Fire” golf and social event to raise money for the Yadkin Valley United Fund (YVUF). Carolina blue skies and grilling smoke greeted over 150 golfers and volunteers participating in the 26th annual G&B Energy Irons in the Fire golf event held on Thursday, September 6th at Cedarbrook Country Club. This year’s tournament raised a record total of $20,202 to jump-start the YVUF fundraising campaign with 10% of the groups 2019 fundraising goal.
A major highlight of the Irons in the Fire event is the food. Grilling and beverage stations scattered throughout the 18-hole golf course feature grilled culinary delights by G&B Energy’s employee grill masters. This year’s tournament featured grilled pineapple and ice cream, smoked chicken wings, tender pork ribs, shrimp and pulled pork quesadillas.
“I am honored and continually amazed by the community support for this annual charity event,” said G&B Energy President Jeff Eidson. “With the hard work of the G&B employees, the giving spirit of our sponsors and volunteers and the continued participation of golfers, the Irons in the Fire tournament continues to be a success. I am grateful for the dedication and hard work by everyone that participated in today’s event,” continued Eidson.
