Could yesterday’s weather have been any better? Joe Caggiano was certainly smiling down on us as we enjoyed a perfect day and the beautiful Whiskey Creek golf course at this week’s Third Annual Joseph P. Caggiano Memorial Golf Tournament. As a veteran himself, Joe would have been proud that this year’s proceeds are once again going to fund a scholarship for a veteran. We were honored to have Joe’s wife, father, and brother (Kathleen, Paul, and Mike) all join us in this year’s tournament. Paul and Mike’s team impressively finished the day in 2nd place!
Due to our generous sponsors and participants in Joe’s tournament, I am proud to announce we will be contributing more than $25,000 to our Coalition for Government Procurement Endowed Scholarship Fund at The George Washington University, where financial support will be provided to a deserving veteran who is concentrating their studies in the field of US Government procurement and pursuing the JD or LLM degree in Government Procurement Law or the Masters of Science in Government Contracting degree (MSGC).
I would especially like to thank our two title sponsors – Integrity Consulting and CohnReznick. Your generous support means a great deal to the Coalition and we can’t thank you enough.
Additionally, thank you to our luncheon sponsor, AvKARE; our reception sponsor, The Gormley Group; and our Beverage Cart Sponsor, EY.
Thank you also to our many hole sponsors: Allen Federal Business Partners, Baker Tilly, Bloomberg, Booz Allen Hamilton, BRG, Brocade, CACI, General Dynamics Information Technology, The George Washington University, HON, Judge Group, Koniag, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, the Rendely Family, Ricoh, SAP, Toro, and Wells Fargo! Every hole at Whiskey Creek was fantastic and their staff once again did an excellent job in assisting with the day’s events – from the scoreboard and golf cart arrangements to the food prep and beverage services.
Thank you, the government contracting community, for coming together and raising awareness and funds for charitable and educational causes such as this one – it’s truly remarkable.

Lastly, thank you to the Coalition team for a job well done. You guys are the best!
Congratulations to all the players and companies involved – we are already looking forward to seeing you again at next year’s tournament!
