Company Supports “Quinn’s Brigade” Youth on Course Fundraiser

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ATTProAm–Blach Construction Company today revealed that Pat Quinn,
director of client services, will be playing in the upcoming AT&T
Pebble Beach Pro-Am
, February 9-12, as part of his role as board
president of the Northern California Golf Association (NCGA).


To celebrate this incredible honor and give back to the game he enjoys,
Pat formed “Quinn’s Brigade,” a fundraiser to benefit Youth
on Course
, one of his favorite organizations. Youth on Course
was founded by the charitable arm of the NCGA, the NCGA Foundation, and
is a nationally-heralded program that enables kids to play golf for $5
or less. In addition to his role on the NCGA Board, Pat serves on the
board of the NCGA Foundation, where he has been intimately involved with Youth
on Course
since 2005.

Pat’s charitable efforts are completely aligned with Blach
Construction’s dedication to philanthropy. “We are committed to
enhancing the communities in which we live and work and that extends
well beyond construction. Giving back is in our DNA,” said Mike Blach,
president and CEO, Blach Construction. “It is particularly gratifying
for me to see Blach employees use their talents and passions to make a
difference. And Pat is doing just that through his tireless dedication
to the NCGA, the NCGA Foundation and its remarkable Youth on Course
program. We are excited to support ‘Quinn’s Brigade’ and help Pat make
history at the 2017 AT&T.”

The core purpose of Youth on Course is to give kids access to
life-changing opportunities through golf. Since its inception in 2005,
the NCGA Foundation has partnered with more than 185 golf courses across
13 states, subsidizing rounds so that youth from 5-18 can play for $5 or
less. More importantly, Youth on Course provides access to high
school job opportunities via internship and caddie programs, and to
higher education through college scholarships.

“For a lifelong golfer from the Bay Area, playing in the AT&T is a dream
come true. But what’s equally as exciting is the fact that I’m able to
use this experience to generate awareness and support for Youth on
Course
, a program that has been critically important to me since I
joined the Board of the NCGA Foundation in 2005,” stated Pat.

“I’m fortunate. My father was an avid golfer, so I grew up playing the
game. I got involved in Youth on Course because I wanted to share
all golf has to offer with youngsters who wouldn’t otherwise have the
chance to play,” he continued. “’Quinn’s Brigade’ has gained more
momentum than I ever imagined and we’ve raised over $240K – more than
doubling our initial goal. And for this I’m honored and forever
grateful.”

Playing for the Kids

“Quinn’s Brigade” is a day-into-evening event on Saturday, February 11.
Starting with breakfast at Porter’s in the Forest, members of the
Brigade will don their signature “PQ” vests and head out to follow Pat
on the Pebble Beach Links. 19th hole festivities include a
celebratory dinner hosted by Golf Channel travel expert Matt Ginella and
prepared by famed chef Johnny De Vivo. All proceeds benefit Youth on
Course
.

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, taking place February 6-12 at the Pebble
Beach Golf Links, has become one of the most internationally recognized
stops on the PGA TOUR. Started by Bing Crosby in 1937 to raise a little
money for charity, it now is hosted by the Monterey Peninsula
Foundation, a nonprofit organization that has given millions of dollars
to dozens of organizations across Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito
Counties.
