Golf classic raises $44K for foundation
The Olympic Medical Center Foundation’s Sonny Sixkiller Husky Celebrity Golf Classic presented by Wilder Auto set record fundraising totals, as more than 380 people gathered at its annual dinner auction Thursday night and golf tournament on July 25.
Held at the Jamestown Tribe’s Seven Cedars Casino, the event raised its highest net total ever, more than $44,000.
“We sold a record amount of corporate sponsorships, had a record attendance, and most importantly, raised more money than ever for Olympic Medical Center’s facilities in Sequim and Port Angeles,” Bruce Skinner, OMC Foundation Executive Director, said.
Sixkiller, the former University of Washington quarterback who led the nation in passing in 1971, is the spokesman for the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe. Working with the tribe and the Foundation, he has staged his tournament at the Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course for four years.
“I’ve been extremely happy to have a tournament that showcases the legacy of University of Washington sports, especially football,” Sixkiller said.
