It's a big effort to pull off a successful golf tournament, and without local sponsors like Agrium and ACS, events like the 12th Annual Boys & Girls Club Golf Classic would not happen.
The spin off benefits of such tournaments are huge, first it gives visitors and family a summer activity other than fishing on the Peninsula, and they generate funds that make possible the many year round programs that the groups like the Boys & Girls club provide. According to Michelle Glaves, Resource Development Director for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Kenai Peninsula, 21 teams participated in this year's Classic.
"It was a great turn out and we even had sunshine that day so it was marvelous golfing weather. Agrium was our major sponsor and ACS was our green fees sponsor; both have been long time Boys & Girls Club supporters as well as great community partners for so many non-profits, so today we presented this plaque to ACS as a token of our appreciation for their sponsorship," said Glaves.
Glaves also stated that the Annual Golf Tournament is their second largest fundraiser of the year.
"We really have a great group of employees that cover the area and that also makes this type of support possible. ACS also feels that the Boys & Girls Club is a very important organization and does great things on the Peninsula, so we are very pleased to support it," said Chuck Stauffer, General Manager for ACS - S.W. Alaska District.
The winning team of this year's Boys & Girls Club Golf Classic was the team from Kenai Chrysler.
