LOWELL -- The Merrimack Valley Food Bank will honor Chris Dick of Trinity EMS at its annual Golf Tournament on Monday, Sept. 10, at Indian Ridge Country Club in Andover.
Dick joined Trinity EMS in 1991 as a wheelchair van driver during his time at college. After moving on to a successful career in the hospitality industry and then the banking industry, Chris returned to Trinity in 2008 as director of business development and marketing. Chris is also a partner in the newly formed Lowell Management Group, which manages the Lowell Memorial Auditorium.
Dick has deep roots in Greater Lowell. He serves on numerous nonprofit boards and committees throughout Lowell and Haverhill. He has been an active member of the board of directors for the YMCA of Greater Lowell for the past 14 years and is the current vice chairman. He is also one of the founders of the Young Professionals of Greater Lowell.
Dick is a 1990 graduate of Tewksbury Memorial High School and received his bachelor’s degree in business/hospitality management in 1994 from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, R.I.
Dick and his wife, Elizabeth, live in Tewksbury with their children, Abbey, 12, Brody, 10, and Tyler, 8.
“We are thrilled to recognize Chris as our honoree this year,” said Amy Pessia, executive director of the Merrimack Valley Food Bank. “Chris is a respected member of our community and contributes significantly to Trinity EMS’s involvement in the region. Chris is a true friend and partner in the Food Bank mission to feed hungry people.”
Numerous opportunities are available to participate in the tournament, including sponsorships, golf foursomes, tickets for the dinner and awards, as well as donations of raffle and silent auction items. Support for the tournament will help the Merrimack Valley Food Bank continue providing food for up to 70,000 individuals monthly through a network of member food pantries, shelters, meal programs, schools and senior centers in nearly 50 communities in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
