Yearly since 2012, Rosendin Electric has partnered with the USO South Texas in hosting an annual golf tournament which helps raise funds for the USO South Texas Chapter in Corpus Christi. This year’s event was held at the North Shore Country Club in Portland, Texas, on October 3rd.
Over twenty golf teams participated and included many Rosendin Electric customers, colleagues, vendors, and employees contributing to the event’s success. Sponsorships collected also provide for active military personnel and veterans to participate in the golf event. For the 3rd year in a row, funds raised from the golf tournament cleared over $10,000 for the USO South Texas Chapter.
As part of its work and contributions to the USO South Texas, Rosendin Electric was invited to attend the USO’s ‘Stars on the Water’ event held on October 2nd in Corpus Christi. The event was held on the USS Lexington which is docked in the Corpus Christi Bay, and included a steak and lobster dinner, music, silent auction, and fashion show. Many local and state-elected officials and major corporations were in attendance. The event raised more than $63,000 for the USO South Texas Chapter. Rosendin Electric, along with several other major corporate sponsors, were recognized by the USO at the event for their support and contributions made in 2013. The USO South Texas has again invited Rosendin Electric to attend next year’s ‘Stars on the Water’ event due to the Company’s continued efforts from this past year.
