$10,000 Raised for Education Foundation at Golf Event
Wednesday, July 12, 2017
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:
- $1,700 was raised during the annual raffle.
- Lube-Tech held a contest at its hole and challenged golfers to make donations to the Foundation. That resulted in $721 in donations, which Lube Tech matched, bringing the total from their hole contest to $1,442.
- During the Awards Banquet, at impromptu pledge drive occurred when the Bame Foundation announced it would match all donations up to $5,000. This spontaneous pledge drive resulted in an $3,902 raised in about 3 minutes.
The total money raised for the Education Foundation was $10,946.
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.
