Contractor helps raise funds and support local veterans
Aberdeen, NC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/24/2017 -- On Friday, Nov. 3, Blanton's Air, Plumbing & Electric will host the second annual Troops to Trades Golf Tournament at Gates Four Golf & Country Club. All proceeds go directly to the Troops to Trades program, which helps honorably discharged veterans, National Guard members and Reserve members of the U.S. Armed Services transition to rewarding careers. Members receive career training and placement options in the skilled trades of plumbing, electrical, heating and air conditioning.
Nathan Coolidge Blanton, the company's founder, served in the U.S. Army from 1943-1945. Throughout its history, Blanton's has supported veterans across the Fayetteville area. Many of Blanton's employees served in the military and bring with them exemplary problem solving skills, leadership qualities and much more. Their work ethic is a key factor in making Blanton's a trusted name for electrical, plumbing, cooling and heating services in Aberdeen, NC. When Blanton's isn't leading with superior service, the company is giving back to those who have served.
"It is our privilege to support the men and women who have sacrificed everything for our country," said owner Will Blanton. "Troops to Trades is a phenomenal program that helps veterans transition from the military to the workplace. We will continue to welcome veterans at Blanton's and do whatever we can to help them excel in rewarding careers."
Before the tournament takes place, there will be a social event on Thursday, Nov. 2, at Huske Hardware House in downtown Fayetteville. The veteran-owned brewery will kick off the event and offer hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. Tickets are $30 per person.
