Dollars for Scholars (Recap)

The third annual 2019 Dollars for Scholars Tournament began with a steady rain falling during most of the day resulting in cancellation of the golf play on November 15, 2019. There was, however, a silver lining…the rain didn’t dampen the excitement of the 125 people who attended the banquet, silent auction and 50/50 raffle drawing that evening. Honored during the event were the individual and corporate sponsors as well as the numerous silent auction donors, who significantly contributed to the financial success of this annual fund raising event. Attendees bid with enthusiasm on the artfully displayed silent auction items and every item was sold. Concluding the exciting evening was the drawing of the lucky raffle winner who again this year was not in attendance.

The rain date for the golf tournament was planned for Monday, January 4, 2020, and it went off without a hitch. Congratulations to the team of Jerry Weis, Elaine Bartlett and Carole Rambo for winning the scramble competition. The winners narrowly edged out the team of Joan Geoghegan, Natalie Knecht, Karin Moe and Elaine Leitinger who placed 2nd . Players celebrated following the friendly, but competitive golf, by joining together after golf for champagne and tasty appetizers in the Golf Simulator lobby and patio.
