Amherst, NH – (October 22, 2019) – Fulcrum Associates, a leading construction management firm in
southern New Hampshire, recently raised $22,000, the equivalent of 44,000 meals, to support the New
Hampshire Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charities New Hampshire, during its third annual Charity
Golf Classic. The tournament, held at the Wentworth by the Sea Country Club in Rye on September 17,
raised funds to support the New Hampshire Food Bank’s mission of providing nutritious food to the one
in nine New Hampshire residents who are food insecure.
“Due to the incredible generosity of our sponsors and players, this year’s tournament raised more than
our first two tournament years combined. We are grateful to everyone involved for coming together in
the name of community,” said Jeff Luter, president of Fulcrum. “At only 50 cents per meal, the support
the New Hampshire Food Bank can provide to those in need with our donation is humbling to consider.
We’re proud to contribute to an organization that has such an impact on those in need, both in our own
backyard and around the state.”
As the only food bank in the state, the New Hampshire Food Bank, which receives no state or federal
funding for food distribution, delivers nutritious food to partner agencies statewide, including food
pantries, soup kitchens, afterschool programs, senior centers and other nonprofit programs. Last year,
the New Hampshire Food Bank distributed more than 14 million pounds of food to its partners
“When every contribution makes an impact, we can all be part of the solution to eliminate hunger in the
Granite State,” said Eileen Liponis, executive director of the New Hampshire Food Bank. “We are
exceedingly thankful to Fulcrum and its partners for their continued generosity over the past several
years, which have been critically important in helping people in need.”
Thirty-six teams from dozens of companies came together for Fulcrum’s third annual golf classic, with
support from more than 50 sponsors. Sponsors included Great NH Restaurants, Primary Bank, Granite
Plumbing & Heating, Envirovantage, SL Chasse, Oliver Mechanical and Lynch’s Landscaping and
Excavation. Ultimately, the winning foursome was a group represented by William Scottsman, KW
Commercial and Casco Bay Engineering who walked away with the tournament’s coveted FulcrumOrange jackets.
