The Suffolk Business Women held its second annual golf tournament at the Sleepy Hole Golf Course on Oct. 1. The tournament was a tremendous success thanks to sponsors and the dedication of chairman Jennifer Simpson and co-chair Veronica Thompson.

Over the years, the Suffolk Business Women have given back to the community more than $300,000 from their fundraising events.

Simpson, Thompson and all the Suffolk Business Women ladies presented $20,000 in checks at the group’s January 2022 meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn Suffolk Riverfront. Those charities receiving proceeds were: Suffolk News-Herald Cheer Fund, Genieve Shelter, CAPS, Suffolk Christian Fellowship Ministry, Suffolk Humane Society, Boys & Girls Club of Suffolk, Suffolk Special Olympics, Out of the Darkness, Edmarc, One27 Inc., Horton Wreaths and the SBW Alzheimer’s Team.
