24th Annual AGC/AIA Golf Tournament Raises $15,000 for ACE Mentor Program - Houston
Legendary professional golfer, Jack Burke, Jr. – the oldest living recipient of the Masters and PGA Championship - welcomed AGC Houston and the American Institute of Architects Houston Chapter at Champions Golf Club on Monday, April 8. After a day of golf on the beautiful Jackrabbit and Cypress courses, one hundred and seventy players completed the tournament in the clubhouse with the traditional five-star buffet and the drawing of raffle ticket prizes.
Prior to the awards ceremony, AGC Houston Chairman Tony Mansoorian, W.S. Bellows Construction Corp. presented ACE Mentor Houston Chairperson, Angela Cotie, Gilbane Building Company, with a check for $15,000. Players and companies helped to raise the funds through team sponsorships and raffle tickets. Celebrating its 10th anniversary in Houston this year, the program mentors high school students to find their way into the architecture, construction and engineering industries. To date, more than 1,000 Houston area students have been mentored and received over $274,500 scholarships.
“This is a special event,” stated Tony Mansoorian, “and we could not do it without the support of the sponsors and Jack Burke who welcomes us each year to this private golf club. Thank you to all of the AGC Houston Golf Committee members and to you and our sponsors for helping to raise funds for ACE Mentor.”
