May has yet to bring us flowers, but it sure is bringing some great weather to the Scorpion headquarters. With the warmer temperatures come more opportunities to get out in the community and make a difference.
Scorpion never shies away from the chance to do good while having a little fun. This month, we were fortunate enough to be a platinum sponsor at the 43rd Annual Frontier Toyota/Henry Mayo “Drive Safe” Golf Classic, which raised funds for emergency care in the Santa Clarita Valley. Scorpion had a five golfers, multiple volunteers, and several more Scorpions who attended the dinner and auction portion of the evening.
Scorpion Vice President of Sales Operations Steve Mauser was one of the day’s players.
“This was my second year playing in the Henry Mayo tournament – my 45th year competing in golf events like this,” he said. “Playing golf and hanging with an amazing group of Scorpions on one of Southern California’s most beautiful courses on a picture-perfect day, all the while helping to raise awareness and donations for a very worthwhile cause – there’s nothing better!”
This was a common sentiment echoed by his four teammates. Cody Chula, Vice President of Healthcare Operations, had an exceptional day that has him already looking forward to playing next year.
“I sank a 17-foot putt, which was my longest putt ever!” Cody said.
Randy Morgan, the designated long ball hitter on our team managed to pick up the prize for Longest Drive. The team finished with a score of 66.
Our Scorpion volunteers were a part of the whole event, handling everything from scorekeeping to contest monitoring to the more creative task of decorating for the dinner and auction. Administrative Assistant Jessica Badger volunteered for the first time this year.
“I didn’t know what to expect when I arrived on-site, but the Henry Mayo crew was very helpful in getting me set up, introducing me to other members of the decorating party, and making sure I had everything I needed. My favorite part was the decoration theme, of course,” she said. “I’m a creative person, and being able to dig in and help set everything up for a memorable event was very rewarding. I will definitely be sure to volunteer again!”
It’s not often that you get the opportunity to volunteer in a role that makes you excited to wake up early and makes you want to come back.
Project Manager Alyssa Lapp went into the day with some basic golf knowledge and a desire to learn anything she could from her team.
“I was a scorekeeper for a team of physicians from Henry Mayo,” Alyssa said. “They were so nice and even taught me how to hit a golf ball. My favorite part of the day was when my team won the staff award! The smiles on their faces was priceless, and they were so happy to beat the ER and Facey teams. I will definitely be back next year!”
