We had over 30 teams and 19 sponsors gather at the Passaconaway Country Club on September 17 for a 18-hole tournament to benefit CASA’s endowment fund in honor of John Zahr, President of Harvey Construction and longtime supporter of CASA.
In its ninth year, the tournament raised $48,000. Since its inception, it has raised a total of $457,000, the net proceeds of which have been contributed to CASA’s endowment fund named in John’s memory. This year, three teams and one individual donated all of their winnings back to CASA, giving an additional $1,650. Thank you to first place team Harvey Construction, second place team Charron LLC, third place team Empire Sheet Metal, and Tony Brock of Longchamps Electric for your generous donations!
The tournament was created in 2011 in the year following John’s untimely death, when his friends and colleagues came together to establish this tournament as a way to give back to CASA, a charity John was passionate about. Each year, a committee of his peers reaches out to businesses and friends for sponsorships and players to hit the links in memory of their friend.
“Many of you have been coming here for a long time, and we’re really grateful for the support,” said Marty Sink, President and CEO of CASA of New Hampshire. “The efforts from this tournament over the last nine years have raised over $450,000 for CASA.”
