More than 140 members of the Sacramento Valley Electrical League (SVEL) participated in a fundraising tournament at the Morgan Creek Country Club in Roseville, CA, that benefited the Children’s Miracle Network and the Pay It Forward Fund.
Nora Lighting sales representative Larry Swoboda, a principal at Sierra West Lighting and one of the organizers, says this marked the 17th year the SVEL has sponsored the event, which has raised more than $250,000 in charitable funds for the University of California Davis Children’s Hospital and the Pay It Forward program.
Nora Lighting, participating as an annual sponsor, donated golf shirts and gift bags for all tournament attendees.
In addition to scholarships, the Pay It Forward program provides industry support for associates with exceptional circumstances. The program has provided funds to members with life-threatening illnesses and has also donated gift cards to Iraq War veterans.
