Accomplishments Report 2017 17 The Foundation The Foundation’s 26th Annual Golf Classic Tournament and 5th Annual Foundation Sporting Clays Event The 26th Annual Golf Classic Tournament at Whirlwind Golf Club was held during ATSSA’s 47th Annual Convention & Traffic Expo, Feb. 10. The Foundation would like to thank the players, sponsors, donors, and volunteers for supporting the Annual Golf Classic Tournament, which was sold out for the fifth consecutive year. The golf tournament and the Sporting Clays Event represent the largest fundraisers of the year that support The Foundation’s programs. Because of these fundraisers, The Foundation is able to provide Roadway Worker Memorial Scholarships to spouses and dependents of workers who are killed or permanently disabled in roadway work zone acci- dents. The hard work and generosity of these individuals helps to maintain the National Work Zone Memorial, which honors more than 1,400 names of those who have been killed in roadway work zone accidents. The Foundation joined Experience Camps to provide children of fallen roadway workers a summer camp for children who are coping with a loss of a parent. The one-week Experience Camps are places for kids to laugh, cry, play, create, and make friends with other children coping with similar challenges. The Fifth Annual Foundation Sporting Clays Event was held at Ben Avery Clay Target Center in Phoenix, Feb. 10. The event sold out for the first time with 100 shooters. Participants, volunteers, and sponsors are integral inmaking the fundraiser a huge success. Because of the dedication and support of these individuals, The Foundation is able to continue its work to provide public awareness of roadway safety and move Toward Zero Deaths and continue its programs.
