Golf Outing Features Fun, Food, Fellowship and Funds for CRVA
Smart City Networks sponsored the 11th annual Jerry Thornton Girl’s Day Away golf outing benefitting the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority’s (CRVA) Educational Foundation at the Rocky River Golf Club in Concord on September 16, 2016. The affair promises to be the social event of the season. It kicked off with breakfast and included lunch, beverages on the course, golf cart transportation, goody bags, green fees, prizes and more. The 19th Hole Celebration featured cocktails, wine tastings, dinner, and raffle. “Smart City is thrilled to serve as the presenting sponsor for this event that brings women business and community leaders together for a day of camaraderie, and friendly competition,” said Vanessa Cauthen, Smart City’s general manager at the Charlotte Convention Center. “More importantly, proceeds from Girls Day Away will help CRVA assist future local convention and meeting industry leaders through scholarships, training, and professional development opportunities.” CRVA extends assistance with educational expenses to employees in the Charlotte region’s hospitality industry who are also students enrolled in accredited college or university hospitality industry-related programs. Scholarships are also available to CRVA employees to support their continuing education through related seminars or certification programs.
Girls Day Away golfers embraced the spirit of the yearly outing, donning coordinated, themed outfits, competing in a golf cart decorating contest and vying for raffle prizes including wine packages, restaurant gift certificates, NASCAR-themed gifts and more
