NORWOOD, MA- ABC Supply Co. will be a proud sponsor of the Seventh Annual Tom Olen Memorial Golf Outing at Brookmeadow Country Club in Canton on June 13th, 2019, hosted by O’LYN Roofing. The event honors the memory of Tom Olen, long-time employee and friend of O'LYN who passed away from cancer in 2010. All of the proceeds go to cancer research organizations as well as contributing financially to families struggling with cancer or persons in need of organ transplants.
ABC Supply Co. of Beloit, Wisconsin, the biggest wholesaler of roofing in the US, will be one of the sponsors this year. ABC Supply Co. will be named a “Tommy’s Friend” sponsor in recognition of their generous support of the event.
Started in 1982, ABC Supply Co. has always encouraged team members to participate in philanthropic events. Associates volunteer in their community at organizations like Meals on Wheels, Habitat for Humanity, as well as donating to United Way.
The Tom Olen Memorial Golf Outing will include a day on the links, a Steak Tip Dinner, and a raffle, as well as golf competitions throughout the day.
