Fifth Annual Domtar Vendor Partnership Meeting and Charity Golf Event
Update: Thanks to the generosity of Independent Container Line, CSF will be receiving another $5,000. The grand total is now $160,000.00!
The beautiful Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge was the backdrop for the Fifth Annual Domtar Vendor Partnership Meeting and Charity Golf Event. The event commenced Monday, October 19, 2015 with a reception and dinner with the Domtar management team and their vendor partners. Domtar announced that the Carson Scholars Fund was the beneficiary of the event with the donation directly benefitting the Ben Carson Reading Room Project. Amy Warner shared that this donation by Domtar and the participating vendor partners was the ‘largest single donation earmarked for the Reading Room Project that CSF has received to date.’ She went on to share with the group that the generous donation would provide funding for 10 Ben Carson Reading Rooms in Domtar facility areas. Commitments are already in place in Bennettsville, SC; Ashdown, AR; and Plymouth, NC. Seven other rooms are in process in nearby Domtar communities.
Tuesday dawned sunny and crisp as 124 golfers headed out for the shotgun start. Domtar executives, managers and their vendors and suppliers maneuvered the pristine course at Ballantyne. A fantastic day on the course was had by all.
