On behalf of the Biocom Institute, we would like to thank the players and sponsors who spent the day out on the course with us at Santaluz on September 9th in support of our Veterans! The Biocom Charity Golf Tournament is always more than just a day on the greens and this year was a monumental success due in great part to our lead sponsor, Fisher Scientific, premium sponsors Airgas, Anthem and Marsh & McLennan Agency, reception sponsor Alexandria Real Estate, in addition to an all-star lineup of supporting sponsors, members and players from some of San Diego’s leading life science companies.

The day kicked off with local student Madden Pearce, from Classical Academy High School, leading us in a beautiful performance of the our National Anthem. 124 life science professionals took to the course for a day filled with sunny San Diego weather and fantastic networking. Special thanks to our Pay It Forward sponsors: Genentech and Thermo Fisher Scientific who also made it possible for many of our veteran’s program mentee’s to join this day on the links.

Congratulations to all of our winners! First Place Winners: Jeff Koprivetz, Tyler Dunigan, Conor Brumfield, and Trevor Walker. Closest to the Pin Winner: Eric Johnson, our Straightest Drive Winner: Kara Swedberg, our Putting Contest Winner: Allen Joelson, and our Whack the Quack Winners: Isaiah Standing Warrior and Dana Ebbets-Reid!

All proceeds from this tournament will go towards supporting our very own Veterans Initiative. Complete with life science career exploration and education, a meaningful mentorship program, and career-focused networking events, the Veterans Initiative provides a holistic approach to addressing skills gaps, hiring and job-search challenges, and a unique direct connection for veterans to the life science industry.
