Recently, four caring associates from Cogmedix, a wholly owned subsidiary of Coghlin Companies Inc., partook in the 7th Annual Flip Flops Bar and Grill Golf Outing to support Wounded Warrior Project, Special Operations Warriors Foundation, and Veterans Inc. of Worcester. The outing was hosted by Flip Flops Bar and Grill of Holden, Massachusetts, and was sponsored by Durand Chevrolet, Wachusett Brewing Company, and Braley & Wellington Insurance Agency.
Matt Giza, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Steve Charron, Engineering Services Manager, Tim Briggs, Program Manager, and Breanna Rinaldo, Program Manager, took part in the bramble-style tournament at Holden Hills Country Club. The day was filled with lots of laughs, some lost golf balls, and a series of final scores no one was willing to share—all for a great cause!

The golf outing took place on a beautiful, sunny day and the Cogmedix team enjoyed spending quality time with great people for a great cause. Over 75 people attended the event that day, which ended with a massive barbecue at Flip Flops Grill. This was the first time Cogmedix attended the event, and the team was honored to help bring awareness to three profoundly positive charities. Flip Flops’ owner and host of the annual event, Nic Viapiano, is an Army veteran who fully supports the efforts of Veterans Inc., the SOWF, and WWP. It was a wonderful day for everyone, made even more so with the knowledge that the raised funds would go to excellent causes.
