OSWEGO, NY – Exelon Generation donated more than $75,000 to 12 local organizations this year with proceeds from this year’s charity golf tournament.

The men and women of Nine Mile Point are strong supporters of the community and are encouraged through Exelon Generation to give back.

Nine Mile employees started the annual golf tournament as one way to help the community the station serves with proceeds directly supporting local charities and programs.

Donations from the golf outing were made to the following organizations:

Oswego High School Band Parents Association, HOPE for Bereaved, Child Advocacy Center, Oswego County Opportunities, Oswego County Humane Society, YMCA, Unity Acres, ARISE (ramp program), Team Red, White and Blue, Oswego Children’s Board and Thank a Service Member Inc.

Proceeds also went toward Nine Mile Point’s Coats for Kids program — an employee-run program providing winter coats, boots and more to local children in need.

“Exelon Generation and the employees of Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station are proud to support the important work done by each of these organizations as they help those in need across Oswego County,” said Pete Orphanos, site vice president. “This community has been tremendously supportive of our company and of nuclear technology. We are committed to giving back and continuing to be an engaged part of this community.”

This year’s tournament was the station’s most successful yet, thanks in part to key sponsors: Babcock Services Inc., Enercon, GE Hitachi, Hanes Supply Inc., Hyperspring, Jingoli, PM&W, Preferred Engineering, Reactor Services Inc., Rombough Electric, Sargent & Lundy LLC and Underwater Construction Corporation.

“The tournament would not be possible without support from our contractors and vendors,” added Orphanos. “We thank them for their partnership which allows us to positively impact so many people and causes in our county.”
