The 20th Annual Golf To Give Classic Raised Over $30,000 For CMN!
Children's Miracle Network is doing big things and just raised BIG MONEY with the 20th Annual Golf to Give Classic up at Apple Tree Golf Course last Friday September 14th, 2018. If you have never been, this course is a must, even if your visit is just for grabbing a drink and a bite to eat on the gorgeous deck overlooking the course, totally worth it in any shape or form!
So how much exactly did they the 20th Golf to Give Classic raise? $33,000! With the money going right back into our very own valley! Incredible AND someone walked away with not only a hole in one but a brand new car brought to you by Harvest Auto!
Couldn't have asked for better weather and a big thank you to all the teams that participated. I will be honest I was there to assist with co-hosting along with the one and only Dave Ettl, not golfing, however the 5th hole of the course was sponsored by Gesa Credit Union and they had the coolest set-up. Donate $5 and you received a marshmallow to attempt to hit the farthest...missed my mallow a few times but finally was able to connect...so much fun! They even made little s'more packages to take home for everyone and it was perfect to split with my hubby because the package was for two! :) Dave provided teams and volunteers with new magic tricks he has picked up and I attempted not get hit by golf balls while flying around the course picking up and dropping off people.
Here is the official statement from Josh Munson, Corporate Partnership Coordinator for The Memorial Foundation
Thank you for your generous support at last week’s tournament! We are excited to announce the 20th Annual Golf to Give Classic raised more than $33,000 to benefit children’s health care programs and services at Children’s Village and Virginia Mason Memorial, your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital®. Thank you!
After a full day on the course, golfers were joined at the 19th Hole Reception by Kelly Baker, who shared her daughter Lily’s journey of living with Down syndrome and how the services she received at Memorial’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and continues to receive at Children’s Village, “their Village,” have impacted her life.
“We are blessed to be involved with this great event that brings the community together in the spirit of raising money for kids treated right here locally,” said Jake O’Neal, Ace Hardware Retail Support Manager and Golf to Give Classic committee member. “We would like to thank everyone who helped make this event such a huge success.”
