Milestone: Golf tourney nets $32K

On Friday May 9, at 1:30 p.m. the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula hosted a four-person scramble at Sunland Golf & Country Club on a rain swept course lit by lightening. 7 Cedars Casino sponsored the tournament along with several silver sponsors.

One hundred forty-four golfers turned out to support the organization’s spring fundraiser and despite the damp day their spirits were high. O

ut on the course, the golfers paid for chances to support the Boys & Girls Clubs in various ways. They bought “throws” and “mulligans” to jump ahead and shave a few strokes of their score. Thirty business sponsored the tee and hole signs garnering over $16,000 in sponsorship support.

Committee co-chairman Fred Harrison and his group of ringers took top seat, winning credit at the host golf course. The ladies division was snatched up by the team of Stephanie Sweet, wife of course manager and PGA pro Tyler Sweet.

Preliminary numbers show the organization met the $32,000 goal.
