DuctTesters Supports “Field of Dreams” Golf Tournament

The North State Building Industry Association just held the “Field of Dreams” Fall Golf Tournament at the Winchester Country Club in Meadow Vista, CA.  The ‪‎North State BIA‬ is a leading advocate for the home building industry in the greater Sacramento region. ‪ They have nearly 500 members, including 35,000 industry jobs.  The North State BIA is committed to preserving and furthering the economic interests of its members, while also working to enhance the industry’s standing as a significant contributor to the regional economy.‎

The day began with a warm up on the driving range and a putting contest.  Next, the participants gathered over to the golf carts and there was a shotgun scramble start.  The day continued with tee box contests and more.  Following the day’s golf play, participants, volunteers and non-golfers joined back at the clubhouse for an awards dinner. DuctTesters‬ was proud to be the Awards Dinner Sponsor.  The “Field of Dream” Fall Golf Tournament Event was a success!  We would like to thank the North State Building Industry Association for their hard work and to all that participated or volunteered in the Tournament.

DuctTesters Supports Kickball Fundraiser

DuctTesters recently participated in a Kickball Tournament Fundraiser and Picnic for Roger Bourdeau. The event was held on July 25, 2015 at Peralta Canyon Park in Anaheim, CA. Roger Bourdeau is a building industry colleague that recently had a heart attack and coronary bypass surgery. During his bypass surgery he then suffered a massive stroke. He has since been having a number of setbacks and the Residential Purchasing Corporation (RPC) hosted a Fundraising Event to help Roger and his family with overwhelming insurance and medical care costs.

Roger Bourdeau is a well-seasoned building professional with prior experience working for Builder’s Showcase Interiors, Merlex Stucco, Petersen Dean Roofing and most recently La Habra Stucco Products. The RPC set out to raise $15,000 and exceeded their goal. The event consisted of a raffle, silent auction, taco bar, snack bar and kickball game. DuctTesters was proud to be a part of the experience and help support the Roger Bourdeau family during this challenging time.
