Our Charity Golf Tournament featured 17 total teams with 64 golfers including nine teams led by Rotarians, thank you! RCWR raised approximately $22,000 in total revenue and expect the amount for charity to be approximately $20,000. More than 25 volunteers from the club, including a dedicated committee consisting of Jim Epps, Bob Ramseur, Neil Woodcock, Joe Fitzpatrick, Casey Nagel, Moe Hassan, Kevin Bodiford, John MacKethan, and Liz McFarlane, planned and executed the myriad of “behind the scenes” work that were critical in making this year’s tournament another resounding success. Total club participation was more than 40 club members. Thank you for your support!  The proceeds from the tournament will provide financial support to many local charities dedicated to improving life in both our community and the world!
