‘FORE’ SLF — RAINFEST RAISES A RECORD $90,135
Ten fearless foursomes played the 6th-annual RainFest Golf Challenge at historic Salem Golf Club on a cold, wet February 27, 2017. The 40 intrepid golfers engaged 510 donors who gave $90,135 to help SLF and our 50+ partnerships. A total of 25 golfers raised $1,000+ and 18 of them will be attending the Champions Dinner in honor of their raising $2,500+ … including Rookie-of-the-Year Mark “Mean Beav” Butler, perennial champion Ryan “Crouching Tiger” Collier, and Tim “Angry Duck” Rawlings—each of whom smashed last year’s single-golfer record of $6,100. Ace!
We’re very grateful for our RainFest volunteers and 18 corporate sponsors, including our Titleist Sponsor—NW Farm Credit Services … our Perpetual Green Vest Sponsor—TNT Management Resources … and our Champions Dinner Sponsor—Hancock Real Estate. Along with all our Gortex ($1,000) and Umbrella ($500) Sponsors … they made it possible for us to have hot food, hot coffee and hot soup traveling around the course in golf carts. Not to mention the red-carpet (green-carpet?) treatment from the professional staff at Salem Golf Club. Rain, wind, flooding, mud—nothing stops them (or our golfers)! C-U-2-16-2018. FORE!
