Though known in the office as a web-design wall-flower, Shoreline’s very own Chris Matthias recently ventured into the great outdoors to attend a charity event for one of our oldest clients (no pun intended). Hosted by Chelsea Senior Living, with support from Mt. Bethel Village and Inglemoor Care and Rehabilitation Center, this year’s annual golf outing was as popular as ever, enticing players of all caliber. Over 100 men and women, some comfy in shorts ‘n sneaks and others cleverly disguised as avid golfers, convened at Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club to show their appreciation for local rescue squads and volunteer first responders.
With staff and supporters from Chelsea and beyond, the full-day event kept attendees merry with breakfast and lunch, raffles and giveaways, a 50/50 prize draw, and of course, 18 holes on the green. A fervent putter himself, Mr. Matthias whiled away the hours with light banter and good-humored fun, resolved in the assurance that his well-trained eye would be as beneficial to a good cause as to his golf card. Not unlike his commitment to client satisfaction, it was this catalyst to the greater good that drove (< golf joke) Mr. Matthias to partake in the day’s festivities.
As it has been many times before, the Chelsea Golf Outing was a resounding success in both attendance and proceeds. Not only did funds cover the entire day’s events, but multiple checks for $1,800 each were signed to first-responder agencies in Chelsea Senior Living communities. A volunteer EMT himself, Chelsea’s Director of Communications, Tom Kranz, noted just how critical these emergency services are to both the fabric of the community and the safety of residents. Versus townships where fire departments and rescue squads comprise a paid staff, volunteer members of local stations are selflessly dedicated to serving their communities without the expectation of financial remuneration.
At Shoreline, as at Chelsea, it is this selfless dedication to doing right that motivates our daily passion toward success. While incentives are sure to line the path (just ask Chris, whose luck saw him walk away with a coveted golf glove), it is the enduring pride of designing a quality product for a quality company that underscores Shoreline’s motto of honesty, quality, and trust. From mom and pop shops to cross-country franchises, we know how much work you put into your business, which is why we put so much into ours.
On and off the green.
