FARMINGTON and GREENSBURG, Pa. - With the goal of raising funds to support the Boy Scout’s mission, 84 Lumber founder, Joseph Hardy, began the annual Joe Hardy 84 Lumber Golf Invitational in 1989, one of the company's largest philanthropic endeavors each year.
As a primary sponsor, 84 Lumber hosts the event every summer at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Farmington, Pennsylvania; this year, the company and its vendor partners, donated more than $130,000 to the Westmoreland - Fayette Boy Scout Council.
The event was held on Aug. 21 and 22 across both of Nemacolin's golf courses with more than 200 participants which included sponsors from across the country, associates from 84 Lumber and the resort, and troop leaders and boy scouts from the council.
Guests are given access to all of Nemacolin's amenities and are invited to participate in a multi-day golf outing, followed by a formal dinner and the presentation of the check to the Boy Scout Council.
"The Joe Hardy 84 Lumber Golf Invitational is an important event for us each year," said Maggie Hardy Magerko, 84 Lumber president and owner. "Together with the Boy Scouts, and our partners, we can make a difference in communities throughout the region."
Founded in 1956, 84 Lumber Company is a privately held supplier of building materials, manufactured components, and industry-leading services for single- and multi-family residences and commercial buildings. 84 Lumber operates more than 250 stores, component manufacturing plants, custom door shops, custom millwork shops, and engineered wood product (EWP) centers in 30 states, representing the top 130 markets in the country.
