The 5th annual Rotary Golf Classic was held on September 27th at Brentwood Country Club. 132 golfers teed it up to play assisted by 24 Rotary Club members working the event under the leadership of Suzie Lindsey.  Everyone had a fun day and the tournament was a financial success raising a record $ 94,000 for the club’s Foundation, where the funds will be used to fund various Grants, Donations, and our high school Scholarship Program. For the 4th year, LBMC was our presenting Sponsor and their contribution makes the tournament work, they’ve been a wonderful partner for us.
In this record year, the club members were able to sell 186 sponsorships which totaled in excess of $ 138,000. Our Funding Partners this year, AGAPE, Healing Housing, Inc., and High Hopes Development Center each received a $ 10,000 Grant to use in their organizations’ ongoing good work in our community.
With Hunter McCarty leading his #1 Sales Team to sales of $ 16,750 and Jason Hulse following close behind with $ 12,700, our 10 Sales Teams did another excellent job. We had 73% of our membership involved, a good number but plenty of room for improvement.
We look forward to next year with new ideas and plans knowing that this event has yet to reach it true potential as a fund raiser for our club. So come be a part next year and join the fun! To all those who participated this year – THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
