As part of our founding belief and ongoing practice of supporting groups and individuals in need, DP Industrial helped sponsor the 10th Annual TIC Cup Golf Tournament for Children’s Charities. This year the event was held April 5-8 2018. This was the 7th year in a row that DPI has been a major sponsor of this wonderful fundraiser.
(DPI President Dave Staley discusses the event with guests)
The charities supported by this golf tournament are Courtney’s Courage ( courtneyscourage.org ), Make-A-Wish Colorado ( colorado.wish.org ), the Ronan Thompson Foundation ( ronanfoundation.org ), and Bags of Fun ( bagsoffun.org ). We were able to meet many of the founders of these wonderful organizations on the course and learn more about them. These folks become personally involved with the children they help, and it is inspiring to hear their stories each year. Each of these groups has a different approach to helping children, and they complement each other. Each is important to not only the families they help directly, but also in growing research and new methods of treatment for those who may be come affected by these diseases in the future. This year’s tournament brought the total contribution of the tournament to over $1,000,000.
This year, the event was held near San Diego CA with the host hotel located at Viejas Hotel and Casino and golf at Sycuan Golf Club. As usual, TIC did a great job planning and organizing the event, making it another resounding success! DPI is proud to be a part of it.

DP Spotlight Employee
Marco has been working in Northern Nevada for the last 18 months. Most recently on the Bentley Heritage Distillery in Minden. When we asked Marco’s fiancé how she would describe her future husband she didn’t hesitate to say; loyal, hardworking, and genuine. These coincide with how he defines success, “Having the best quality of life is not money but being happy and achieving goals I set for myself.” So far his biggest accomplishments in life are his two beautiful children, a wife, and purchasing a home in northern California. His Idol is his “Pop’s” for teaching him to work hard and be responsible. His mantra is life is, “Respect others they way you want to be Respected!!” And the reason he works safe is for his own personal safety and everyone around him.
