A Few Spots Left for Superintendent’s Cup

July 19 at Sandia Golf Club

Taking place on July 19, the Superintendent's Cup presented by B&D Industries aims to raise more than $75,000 for APS schools and classrooms to support innovative programs in the 2018-19 school year.

Reaching that goal is a team effort. Business leaders from across the city come to play 18 holes while knowing that their sponsorship of the tournament is an investment in the future leaders of tomorrow. 

“B&D is proud to be, yet again, this year’s Presenting Sponsor of the Superintendent’s Cup benefitting the APS Education Foundation. The youth of our community is everyone’s future, and the importance of supporting a proper education and development cannot be overstated as they are our future electricians, mechanical techs, teachers, politicians, accountants, etc. and the betterment of our community depends on how well we support them,” says Troy Beall, president of B&D Industries, Inc.

Spots are still available in the afternoon flight. Afternoon flight golfers will join their fellow morning flight golfers for the Superintendent’s Luncheon generously provided by Texas Roadhouse starting at noon. As the tournament concludes, the golfers will have their final chance to bid on their favorite packages as part of the 2018 Online Auction. They will also be the first to know who won men and women’s Closest to the Pin and Longest Drive contests, and of course, they will witness the announcement of the tournament winner.

Last year, Kenny McCulloch of the New Mexico Automotive Recyclers Association and his team took first place in the afternoon flight and edged out B&D Industries, the morning flight first place winners, to take home the Superintendent’s Cup. This year, B&D Industries will return and they plan to reclaim the top spot. 

“B&D’s strategy for going after the gold this year rests solely on the putter of John Dufay, APS Executive Director Operations,” claims Mr. Beall. 

Superintendent Raquel Reedy will be out on the course, greeting golfers and checking their form. 

“I’m more of a golf fan than a golf enthusiast. Honesty, I don’t play the game, but that hasn’t stopped me from having a lot of fun grading the performance of participants during the Superintendent’s Cup," Reedy said. "As far as I’m concerned, it’s all about attitude and appreciation. Everyone who participates deserves an A. Just being out there is making a difference."
