Marlborough – Over 80 golfers gathered at the Marlborough Country Club June 3 to play in the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce’s (MRCC) 40th Annual Premier Golf Outing (PGO).

Susanne Morreale Leeber, the chamber’s president and CEO, noted that through the years, the PGO had been held in all kinds of weather, good and bad. She was thrilled, she said, that the 40th outing would be on a day that was warm and sunny.

“It’s a beautiful chamber of commerce day!” she said.

Many of chamber’s events held throughout the year were serious occasions, she added, designed to help the region’s businesses do business.  And although the PGO was a great way to network, she added, it was “also a chance to have fun.”

Just as importantly, she noted, the PGO this year was serving as a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Clubs of MetroWest.

“As part of our 40th anniversary celebration we are working to raise money to send 40 kids to summer camp this year,” she said.

Before the tournament, golfers had the chance to try their luck on a putting green sponsored by Marlborough Savings Bank.

Other sponsors included Executive –Holologic; Major – DTZ, Boston Scientific and Boyd Coatings Research; Supporting – Al Brodeur’s South Street Auto; Print – D3 and Media – WCRN, WXLO, Metro West Daily News,  Hudson Sun and the Marlborough Enterprise.

Others donors for the event included Main Street Café, Dunkin Donuts, Body Mind and Spine, Wayside Ford,  and Marlborough Nissan.
