Socket Helps Joplin

As soon as the tornado disaster in Joplin made headline news last Sunday, May 22, Socket employees quickly came together to do all they could to help.
Socket organized a tornado relief drop-off, which allowed people from around the area to drop off items such as clothing, toiletries and toys. Also, throughout the week, Socket held several small company fundraising events in order to raise money for Joplin relief. Socket presents check to Joplin relief efforts

Coastal Electric Invitational

Socket helped sponsor the Sixth Annual Coastal Electric Invitational Monday, May 16 at Columbia Country Club. The golf tournament benefited the BJ Palmer Memorial Fund for Woodhaven, a provider of community-based supported living services for men and women with developmental disabilities.
Socket sponsored a par three hole and allowed golf teams to take a break from the tournament and enjoy a quick, fun game of hillbilly golf. At the end of the golf tournament, the golf team with the highest hillbilly golf score won a $100 gift certificate to Addison's.
