$10,000 Raised for Education Foundation at Golf Event

The generosity of MPMA members was evident during the 33rd annual Open Golf Classic when a little over $10,000 was raised for the Education Foundation.

The annual raffle brought in $1,700 and another $721 came from donations made during a contest at a hole sponsored by Lube-Tech during the golf tournament. The big surprise came at the end of the event when Lube-Tech proposed that if we could raise $5,000 in the room that night (including the $721 raised at the hole earlier), the Bame Foundation would match all donations up to $5,000! This very spontaneous and impromptu pledge drive – which we challenged each table to donate $200 total per table – resulted in an additional $3,586 in about 3 minutes! 

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Education Foundation, as your generosity will fund about 10 scholarships. And an extra-special thank you to Lube-Tech and the Bame Foundation!
