Just wanted to send you a quick thank you note for all your help on USG’s Giving Back Charity Golf Outing. This event was the most successful event in our 8 years of hosting the outing, helping us raise a record amount for three great charities – Breast Cancer Research Foundation, JDRF, and Special Olympics – Young Athletes. In addition to the money we raised, the comments and feedback I received from the golfers were overwhelmingly positive, with many pointing to the fun they had participating in the games on the course. Your staff was a great addition to our event and kept things light and fun, which is a tough thing when you have 180 golfers on the course for a 5-hour round (which, by the way, is probably the fastest round this group has had).
We are already working on next year’s date and plan to have your team on hand to help us surpass this year’s record.
Thanks again for all your help.
Phil Ciesiulka - Director, Business Development Performance Flooring, USGThanks Mike. It was a wonderful outing and financially, our most successful yet. Over the past two years since we first partnered with SMT, we have seen the success of our golf outing increase immeasurably. Financially, our net profit has increased significantly as a result of our partnership with SMT. Your on course games and scratch cards are instant money makers for our foundation. Money isn't everything when it comes to our outings and SMT has added tremendously to the fun of our outings also. People that have fun at our outing remember Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago and our fight against epilepsy.
Thanks Mike for helping increase the awareness of epilepsy, increasing the funds generated by our outing and making our golf outing a lot of fun.

Interim President and CEO
Epilepsy Foundation of Greater ChicagoSMT Golf was a HUGE hit! Everyone was amazed by the Golf Ball Canon and how many different games and prizes were available. I have already referred you to 3 different outings coming up, and I recommend that this kind atmosphere should be mandatory at every outing. I can't wait to have you guys back next year!
Tom DwyerMike's knowledge and helpfulness made our 1st Annual Golf Outing a huge success! He's very helpful day of the event and the games he brings to the course add a new level of competitiveness for golfers! Being this was our first outing, Mike was very resourceful leading up to the event as well! Job well done!

This was the first year we have used SMT to run games on the course. I have had excellent feedback from golfers. The SMT staff is professional and easy to work with. At the end of the day we made more money with the help of SMT!
Matt Hanson - Lieutenant, Elburn Fire Dept.Thanks to the SMT team for all of their efforts to help our golf outing be successful! We heard lots of good comments again this year about the different type of games we had available. We have tentatively booked our 2013 outing for the first Monday in June, See you there!
Norma Lansing - Effingham Chamber of CommerceThank you, Mike, for getting the SCS annual golf outing to the next level. Already a profitable golf outing, SMT helped us to increase our attendance by nearly 60%. Everyone was talking about the golf ball launcher and other new contests, prizes, and most of all - FUN! We couldn't have done it without you and the creative twist you add to the typical outing. Again, thank you!
Kelli Cody,Executive Assistant, SCS Inc.SMT Golf lives up to their mission statement. They made our golf event more fun and more memorable. Their representatives were helpful, attentive and a delight to work with. I look forward to what they will have "new" for next year!
Mike McGrath, President, Exhibit Marketing Partners, Inc.You and your team provided a great departure from the normal “run of the mill” outing.
The different games brought a lot of positive comments from our golfers and the additional income generated, was certainly a bonus!
Bill Novak, Easter Seals Board of DirectorsMike, Thank you again for making the 2nd annual Cure It Foundation golf outing a huge success. Daren and Tina were so helpful and just great with the golfers on the course, many compliments about them. The auction items you sent were a hit, the Toews Blackhawks piece, St.Andrews pictures and the framed Michael Jordan went quickly and we ended up getting more money than anticipated. Save the date for next year!!! THANK YOU!
Rick Chaloupka, The Cure It Foundation
“I have to admit that I was skeptical. No one on our planning committee had ever attended an event that SMT coordinated. You want to believe the testimonials, you want to believe that you really can earn money for your charity and the cost be seem-less. After a number of conversations we knew we needed help and decided to give SMT the chance.Our event was a great success and we owe it to you and your team. Your professionalism, hospitality, and ability to fit in as if you were the charity made our event memorable. The test of a great golf event in my opinion is in the memories provided. Yes we had perfect weather, and yes we played on a great track. But every person I spoke to had unanimous praise of the games, laughed about how fun they were, and commented on what a great day they had. We provided some great memories today!At a time when people rarely meet our expectations, SMT exceeded ours.
Many thanks to everyone on your team that made it happen for us. We look forward to many years of working together”.

“This being the first year we ever did a golf outing, SMT was exceptionally helpful with all the details. The long drive cannon and blackjack went over really well. Everyone involved had a great time! The prizes were a big hit and can’t wait to do it again”.

Americana LombardI just wanted to say thank you to you and SMT Golf for hosting our event for the Geneva Chamber Golf Outing! This was the second year that we decided to have SMT Golf host our event for us. In this economy and all the golf outings that you do, it was great that your company made our event so much fun for the golfers and a money maker for the chamber.
I liked the way that you actually “hands on” called the golf course and made sure that everything was all ready to host our event and the follow up with our committee too!
The scattered flags game was one that we chose and to have 100 flags in the fairway that represent over $60,000 in prizes that golfers can win was EXCITING! One of our golfers won a gas grill! Not to mention the 2 free vacations and golf clubs that your company provided too!
I would definitely recommend your company to anyone who wants to make money for any organization.
Lynn Pranga – Chair for Geneva Chamber Golf Outing
I just wanted to say thank you to you and SMT Golf for hosting our event for Literacy Volunteers of Fox Valley. This was our first year to host this event and we really appreciated your expertise and ideas on hosting an event.
I have been chair for several golf outings and your company really has it down! Your follow up to make sure our event will be a money maker for our cause helped us achieve what we needed and more.
We received compliments from the golfers on the fun games that you had at the holes and the scratch cards for winning a trip was a hit! Everyone can not believe how you can give away the trips and have the staff involved for what you charge not to mention the other free items your company provided.
It was really hard to figure out what games to choose from your 24 or so game’s but we decided to choose the Golf Ball Launcher! Players actually got to shoot their own golf ball out of a one of a kind creation! Fun! I would definitely recommend your company to anyone who wants to make money for an organization.
Lynn Pranga – Chair for Literacy Volunteers/Fox Valley“Mike & the SMT team helped make the day very memorable for the participants of the outing. The on-course games added an additional layer of fun and profit to our charity outing. We look forward to working with SMT again next year!”
