On Monday, August 27, 2012 four employees from NFM, Inc.’s corporate office ventured to Towson, Maryland to participate in the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of Maryland’s (NCADD-MD) Recovery Classic Golf Tournament. Jan Ozga, Chief Operating Officer, Amy Fitcher, Loan Officer, Jeff Corsiatto, Loan Officer, and Chuck Miller, Loan Officer participated in the event on the behalf of NFM, Inc. In addition to competing in the golfing events, NFM, Inc. was also a silver sponsor of the event. NFM, Inc. is a proud supporter of NCADD-MD and its mission to raise awareness of addiction and recovery issues.
The event was held at the Country Club of Maryland in Towson and featured various events and prizes throughout the day. For NFM, Inc., the day was highlighted by teammate Amy Fichter winning the Lady’s Long Drive event—on the hole that NFM, Inc. sponsored! Jan Ozga, COO of NFM, Inc., organized NFM, Inc.’s involvement with the NCADD-MD’s Recovery Classic and is looking forward to continued involvement with NCADD-MD:
“This was a great opportunity to support a great cause and to show how committed NFM, Inc. is to community involvement. Not only does it help to raise awareness about drug and alcohol dependence through NCADD-MD, our participation raises awareness within our own company as well.”
David Silverman, President and CEO of NFM, Inc. commented, “NFM, Inc. is very committed to supporting issues regarding addiction and recovery, especially within our communities. In addition, NFM, Inc. offers an employee assistance program that allows individuals who are dealing with stress, depression, addiction, or any other issue they are encountering, to talk to someone outside of the company confidentially.” NFM, Inc. recognizes the fact that addiction is a disease, not a stigma, moral failing, or lifestyle choice. NCADD-Maryland board chair, David Nelson, said: “We are most grateful to NFM, Inc. for their sponsorship of our event. We appreciate their support for our work and hope that their enlightened approach to addressing alcohol and drug-related issues within their employee ranks will serve as a model for other companies to follow.”
The NCADD-MD Recovery Classic was a great day of golf for all that participated, and NFM, Inc. looks forward to more opportunities to support this inspiring organization.
