Attending on behalf of BirchStreet Systems, Zachary Daly, business development manager, shares his experience at this year’s event: “I’m truly honored to have attended the 2023 Sodexo Charity Classic presented by PepsiCo benefitting the Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation last week. I hope I represented BirchStreet Systems well, as our team placed 3rd in the tournament, just behind the talented team led by Sodexo’s Eddie Phillips and Jim Iannarone. The Broadmoor Resort did not disappoint.”
