The BBA is an organization of business professionals who are focused on expanding their business opportunities while improving their relationships with, and gaining exposure to, other local business owners. In addition, its members are involved in many community and civic activities, helping to make Bellingham a town everyone can be proud of.
The BBA is proud to sponsor many activities and programs, such as $1500 scholarships to two graduating seniors and an annual “Unsung Hero Award” given to a dedicated individual who provides outstanding service and commitment to the community. It also makes financial contributions to many worthwhile causes and events such as Santa’s Elves, Family Movie Night, Bellingham Friends of Music, the Wrentham Developmental Center Christmas Party, BHS’s Operation Graduation, the Bellingham Library, the Senior Center and the local YMCA.
One of its most successful fundraisers is the annual golf tournament, the proceeds from which go directly to the scholarship fund.
Tee-off time is 3:30 pm sharp; format is Florida Scramble (Best Ball) for 9 holes, followed by dinner, awards and a raffle. The cost is $75.00 per golfer, which includes greens fees, a golf cart and dinner, along with an opportunity to win raffle prizes.
Non-golfers are welcome to enjoy the dinner afterwards, at 6:30 pm, at a cost of $25.00. This event, in this non-business setting, is a change of pace and always a whole lot of fun.
