A ThinkNW Open Thank You!

On the last Thursday of September, our Pacific Northwest marketing, creative and advertising community gathered to fore-get all troubles and par-tee like the pro golfers we are. 

To all who attended and supported our 2023 ThinkNW Golf Open, thank you!!! And thank you to our sponsors and partners who make this signature event possible.  

You all helped us continue to fund our mission: advancing the business impact of bold Pacific Northwest creative thinkers.

To our title sponsor, Infillion: Your leadership with our third ThinkNW Golf Tournament helped make this the biggest event in our history. 

More gratitude:

  • ChannelFactory, your sponsorship of wine added a touch of elegance to our event.
  • 3-Point Brand Management, your fabulous gift bags were a hit among our attendees.

  • Viant, your provision of beer added to the fun and camaraderie of the day.

We would also like to thank our hole sponsors:

FIR NW, Plastic Sunshine, Viant, Kargo, HMH, Broadhead, Hijinx, North, Big Giant, MiQ, Starch. Your presence at the golf holes made our Open extra exciting, and we loved seeing what your pop-ups were all about. We appreciate your support!

Lastly, we thank everyone who attended and supported this year’s tournament. Here’s a LinkedIn exchange between board member Tim Wang and Marc Moran that perfectly recaps this year’s Open: 

Tim: “The ThinkNW Open is always a good time bringing #creativity from the #PNW together for some golf scramble… Good to see familiar faces and meet new ones. Oh, and I may have gone off-roading with the cart a few times. Sorry!” 

Marc: “Cart path only! The marshals were not messing around this year.” 

Tim: “Duuuuuuude.. I know… lol.” 

ThinkNW community, we honestly cannot do it without you. Whether you ‘putt’ in work on the course or supported from afar, our 2023 Golf Open was a ‘hole’heartedly fantastic time. (We let Nicole keep the puns —Ed.)
