$10,000 raise at the 5th Annual Tom Olen Memorial Golf Outing
O'LYN Roofing held the 5th Annual Tom Olen Memorial Golf Outing at Brookmeadow Country Club. Over $10,000 of funds were raised and will go directly to beneficiaries of the Tom Olen Memorial Fund.
The event was started in 2013 to honor Tom Olen's legacy. Tom Olen was a long-time employee and friend of O'LYN who passed away from cancer in 2010.
The Outing included a full day of golf, a Steak-Tip Dinner, and a raffle. This year, 70 golfers and 96 dinner attendees attended the event. "We are very grateful to have had such a great turnout at the 5th Annual Tournament", said Linda Olen, President of O'LYN Roofing and sister-in-law to Tom Olen. "With all contributions from sponsors and players, we were able to raise over $10,000 in funds that will go directly to beneficiaries of the Tom Olen Memorial Fund. We will be able to make such a positive impact in our community because of the support we have received and we could not be happier!"
All of the proceeds from the golf outing will be donated to cancer research organizations and financially assisting families struggling with cancer or persons in need of organ transplants. This year's scholarship recipient was James Daley, who has been attending Merrimack College this past year.
"We would like to thank our customers, neighbors and friends for assisting us in fighting this disease that affects so many of our loved ones," said Michael Olen, founder of The Tom Olen Fund and brother of Tom Olen. "It means so much to us to make a difference and help fight cancer, and we hope to continue to do so."
