The Mike Burkett Memorial Golf Outing announced a $24,000 total raised for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society this year. Hosted by Burkett Restaurant Equipment & Supplies, the event has been run as a memorial fundraiser since 2021 when the company’s founder, Mike Burkett, passed away after a 34-year battle with multiple sclerosis.

“To see the success of this outing and the continuous generosity of our partners supporting the National MS Society is unbelievable. My father would be proud of the work we are doing in his honor, and words cannot express what this means to me personally,” says Jameel Burkett, president and CEO of Burkett, in the release.

The $24,000 donation was made possible, in part, by the outing’s many attendees and sponsors, including the following:

  • Premier Sponsors: Zink Foodservice, Manitowoc and True Mfg.
  • Birdie Sponsors: Delfield, Professional Reps and Scotsman
  • Par Sponsors: DRC Marketing Group and John Boos
  • Lunch Sponsor: Dynamic FoodService Solutions
  • Skill Game Sponsor: Nemco Food Equipment

  • Hole Sponsors: Ali Group (Beverage-Air and Victory), Atosa, Eastman & Smith LTD. Extra Virgin Food Service, Gabriel Group, Greenwald Sales & Marketing, HRI, KeyBank, Marco’s Pizza, Nemco Food Equipment, Phoenix East and Vollrath


To close out the day, Burkett presented annual partnership awards to two attendees: Matt Hiegel of Dynamic FoodService Solutions was awarded 2022 Vendor of the Year, and Dynamic FoodService Solutions also was honored as the 2022 Representative Group of the Year.
