FMC showed appreciation to the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America in lots of different ways at the recent GCSAA Conference & Trade Show. Promotions featuring the company’s “Give Back to Local Chapters” program generated a lot of donations for those GCSAA local chapters – nearly $30,000 in all.
Also, a “Give Back to Local Chapters” appreciation dinner at the Oceanaire restaurant drew hundreds of attendees with a blend of a 5-star menu, premium drinks, networking and storytelling.
“We were thrilled with the level of activity all week at our booth,” notes Mike Sisti, North American Marketing Manager. “We had a golf simulator that allowed course superintendents to raise “Give Back” checks for their local chapters. We also combined that with overall participation by chapter to add to the totals.”
