On Monday, June 4 we held our Annual Lake Cities Memorial Golf Tournament at the Oakmont Country Club. In its 17th year, the tournament is a cornerstone of our fundraising efforts. It serves as an opportunity to bring our supporters together and raise considerable funding for deserving students and teachers in our school district.
Featuring 168 golfers split between two flights, this was our most successful tournament to-date! Raising $50,000, four-person teams truly had a blast out on the green.
The day kicked off bright and early at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start for the first of two flights. The competitive spirit among our supporters was strong as they duked it out for low gross team, longest drive, closest to the pin and Hole in One. While everyone played a great game, we have to take a moment to spotlight the winners of this year’s Memorial Golf Tournament.
