Among them was CD Publisher Chris Weiss, as Chauffeur Driven was once again the event’s breakfast sponsor.

NELA With volunteers from the association and industry at large making sure the event began—and then ran—without a hitch, it was a team effort to make sure the golf outing welcomed its second decade with the networking, socializing, and industry solidarity among operators, vendors, friends, and family that the event is known for.

Once the golf tournament was over and everyone was sitting down to the evening’s lavish dinner, the winning teams were announced:

First place: L.A. Limousine’s Team Blue, owned by NELA 2nd Vice President Tina Benson (marking their sixth time taking the top spot!)
Second Place: Team Ace Shuttle
NELAWinner of a pass to the CD/NLA Show Lynda Saitta of Momentum Drives with Chauffeur Driven Publish Chris Weiss Third Place: L.A. Limousine’s Team Green
