Despite multiple rain showers, the 2019 Burkett Restaurant Equipment and Supplies Customer Golf Outing was a huge success because of the support of our participating partners and customers.
Behind the scenes, Burkett’s team in charge of the golf outing, led by Crystal Rinker, Director of Sales & Marketing, was challenged by President Jameel Burkett to grow the event. The goal was to have all proceeds be a charitable donation to the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America, honoring Jameel’s father (and our founder) Mike Burkett.
Mike remains an important part of Burkett’s story and continues to inspire the company through his own courageous battle with multiple sclerosis, a disabling disease of the central nervous system.
Burkett could not be what it is today without Mike Burkett’s vision, work ethic and family values over the course of our 4 decades in business.
After tallying all sponsorships of and expenses for this year’s event, Burkett was able to put the proceeds toward a $1,000 donation to MSAA!
Burkett hopes to continue to use this annual event as a way to fight for a cure by giving to MSAA in future years. That starts with next year’s golf outing on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at Belmont Country Club in Perrysburg, Ohio.
