Sponsors support STEM education through Golf Classic
On Sept. 7, MassBio will return to the prestigious Pinehills Golf Club in Plymouth for the 18th Annual Golf Classic. The tournament will feature 18 holes of golf, as well as a fun networking reception, raffles and an auction. Proceeds help support the Massachusetts Biotechnology Education Foundation’s work advocating for and directly funding programs and services proven to build the Massachusetts’ biotechnology workforce.
The Golf Classic would not be possible without the help of generous sponsors, many of whom have
supported the MassBioEd Foundation for a number of years. Their dedication allows the Foundation to provide Massachusetts high school teachers with the skills and equipment necessary to teach biotechnology, ultimately aiming to provide the life sciences with a strong workforce in the future.
Veolia Environmental Services, one of the Golf Classic’s longest running sponsors, has been involved with MassBio for 15+ years and has been a proud sponsor of the Annual Golf Classic for just as long.
“While the day is certainly filled with camaraderie, networking and enjoyment, the true testament of
success can be evaluated in the programs that the fundraiser supports,” said Derek Nelhuebel of
Veolia. “MassBioEd’s initiatives for the development and education of our youth are of critical importance to our industry.”
Airgas is a favorite sponsor for many Golf Classic participants—you may have seen them supplying their signature dry ice ice cream. For the past six years, they have been an active sponsor of the Golf Classic, considering their support as a natural progression to their work with MassBio and its member companies.
“As active stakeholders of this industry,” said Adam Beck of Airgas, “we realize the need to inspire the next generation to enter this challenging field of biopharma and keep it growing.”
We are thrilled to name Veolia and Airgas as sponsors of this year’s Golf Classic and thank them
for their ongoing support.
