The Gainesville Air Conditioning Contractors Association (GACCA) celebrated their 10th Annual Golf and Fishing Tournament on October 19 -20, 2018 at the Plantation Inn Golf Resort and Spa in Crystal River, FL. Dozens of contractors, family members and guests attended this year’s event, enjoying two days of golf, fishing, networking and relaxing by the pool.

On Saturday, the golfers competed on the links while 9 teams of anglers searched for the largest catch in the fishing tournament. Winners were recognized at the awards banquet that evening. Sponsor-donated prizes were raffled, including a Supco inspection camera donated by GACCA, a Uniden Marine VHF radio donated by P & J Marine, a 20-quart Polar cooler donated by Millers Boating Center and a Yeti cooler package donated by Johnstone Supply The Ware Group.

A portion of the funds raised through sponsorships and the raffle is donated each year to local charities including Crime Stoppers, United Way and the Santa Fe HVAC program. In 6 years, including this year, over $9,000 has been donated.

“Once again, this shows how much we all have in common with each other even though as distributors and contractors we are competitors in business,” stated Master of Ceremonies Mark Hurm. “It’s great to see how many families brought their kids this year as well. Thank you to everyone for contributing and attending and a special thank you to the organizers of this event, Chessie Flanders, Steve Jeppson and Bill Hogle.”

The following sponsors received special recognition as well: Platinum: Florida Credit Union, MID-FLA Htg & Air, Trane and Goodman; Gold: Carrier Enterprise, Citizens State Bank, Hogles Heat & Air and Florida HVAC Insider and Johnstone Supply Ware Group; Silver: Baker Distributing, Bounds Htg & Air, Comfort Temp and Florida Cooling Supply; Bronze: Ferguson HVAC, Lennox, Tropic Supply and Workman’s Comp.

For information on next year’s sponsorships contact GACCA President Travis Lyons at 352.310.0022.
