The awardees received an engraved Lucite award.

Portland City Commissioner Steve Novick said he felt privileged to present the 2013 “Outstanding Organization” award to the business.

“Dennis’ 7 Dees is a longstanding landscaping company recognized by the Professional Landcare Network for Environmental Improvement,” Novick said. “The company has a strong history of protecting and enriching not only the environment, but also its local community.

“Dennis’ 7 Dees began its Annual Charity Golf Tournament as an outing for its employees and some of its small vendors. It has evolved into a significant fundraiser, benefitting homeless families in East Portland, in partnership with Human Solutions.

“In their first year of fundraising, the tournament brought in $7,000. In 2013, the group raised over $100,000 through countless hours of donated time and effort, while maintaining a demanding and successful private business.”
