This year's Broomfield Police Officers/Firefighters Benefit Golf Tournament  was another great success!



For the sixth year, the Broomfield Rotary Club welcomed a sell-out crowd to the

annual Broomfield Police Officers/Firefighters Benefit Golf Tournament hosted

this year by Eagle Trace Golf Course.  Forty-five businesses. Local and regional

contributed goods, services and money to help make this event a whopping

success.  We are fortunate to have community involved businesses willing to

help out when the need is there.


Again this year, used golf equipment was collected by the Broomfield Rotary

Club to help the Open Fairways Program for disadvantaged kids.  Used equipment

is given to Nike Golf in exchange for new golf equipment for the kids.  One

talented young 12 year-old donated two sets of outgrown clubs so other kids

will be able to share the game he loves!    More information on this program

can be found at .


The Eagle Trace staff worked hard to make sure everyone was well fed and the

golfers need not suffer from thirst.  Broomfield Rotary Club volunteers proved

skillful at handling the crowd and making sure that most of the golfers took

prizes home.  Broomfield Mayor Pat Quinn, Police Chief Tom Deland, and

golfing members of the city council challenged the field with their expertise.

Sidelined by a wonky leg, District Fire Chief, John O'Hayre helped his fellow

Rotarians by making all the important decisions.


The final accounting revealed a net profit of $23,000.00 was raised by this

event.  The primary goal of this tournament remains the continued availability

of funding for the Broomfield Police Officers/Firefighters Benefit Fund so that

those who serve this community with valor can depend on financial help when

one of their own is hurt or killed in the line of duty.  All monies received by

the Broomfield Rotary Charitable Foundation are used to support worthy

causes both local and regional. 


From its inception, this tournament has proved to be one of the most popular

events of its kind, selling out every year.  The continued success of this

tournament is solid evidence of the generosity of those who live and work

in Broomfield.


Members of the Broomfield Police Department, the Firefighters of the North

Metro Fire District, the Broomfield Rotary Club, and Eagle Trace Golf Course

Staff thank each and every one of you......including all those golfers....for,

once again, proving that Broomfield is a terrific home town!
