Deerfield Beach, FL – May 15, 2017 – Representatives of Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) attended and exhibited at the 2017 WQA Convention & Exposition in Orlando, Florida, to raise funds and awareness for the cause of clean water. The three-day gathering of water-industry professionals was preceded by WWIF’s 5th Annual Golf Tournament at the Shingle Creek Golf Club on March 28.
More than 30 golfers played in the event. Their registrations and the sponsorships of 34 companies netted nearly $11,000, which will be used to buy water filtration systems in developing areas. With these funds, WWIF will be able to positively impact approximately 1,100 people. Each filter costs $100 and provides clean, safe drinking water for 10 people for 10 years.
Orlando once again delivered perfect golfing weather. The shotgun scramble event concluded with the following list of winners:
1st Place Team
• Ryan Adams, Pentair
• Shawn Talley, Pentair
• Danny Bauer, Enpress, LLC
• Mike Mormino, Enpress, LLC
2nd Place Team
• Scott Foster, Omnipure
• Brett Simmons, Omnipure
• James Good, Good Water Warehouse
• Kurt Peterson, WC&P International Magazine
3rd Place Team
• Sid Fly, Turbidex
• Todd Furbee, Delta Pure
• Tom Holler, LG Chemical
• Marty Jessen, Linx Water
The Longest Putt and the Longest Drive Awards went to Cindy Gresham, Thermax Inc. The Closest-to-the-Pin Award went to Brent Simmons, Omnipure.
It was an enjoyable getogether on the greens for friends and business associates. But it was also a successful fundraising event for WWIF and its primary focus: clean water. “We greatly appreciate the sponsorships, donations and support of everyone involved in this event,” said Guillermo Guzman, CEO and Founder of WWIF. “With all sincerity, I highly encourage the professionals of our industry to get involved to whatever extent they can. These contributions make a huge difference for real people.”
The 10-1-10 Africa Expedition is the next major event for the Foundation. It’s a 10-day excursion through South Africa and Swaziland, in which WWIF representatives and sponsors will deploy biofilters in areas with polluted water. It begins August 25 and concludes on September 3. Those who are interested are encouraged to become sponsors and team members of the event.
