It stormed all night and into the early morning hours, causing several of us here at the Guild to have mild panic attacks, wondering if the weather would cooperate for us yet again. But by 7am the sun was working its magic and Guild staffers along with the wonderful people at Hayfields Country Club, were well into their preparations for the guests arrival.
Golfers enjoyed breakfast in the clubhouse, entered our raffles and did a little shopping before hitting the links for our 9:15 tee time. The foursomes, rounded out with a variety of celebrity golfers, including Tippy Martinez, Rick Dempsey, Michael McCrary, Brad Jackson, and Al Bumbry, played in a best ball competition while having fun with a variety of competitions throughout the course. What started out as questionable weather, turned into a day that would require sunblock.
We are grateful for the co-chairs of our Golf Classic Committee, Terry Carnes and Paul Hoyer and for the committee members for helping to make this day happen.
Thank you to our many sponsors, without whom we couldn’t continue to grow; ConTest, CECA, CANUSA, Interactive Touchscreen Solutions, RMTS Insurance, Allegis Group, Partlow Insurance, Avena Contracting, KatzAbosch, Mainfreight, Steel Building Specialists, Anderson, Coe & King LLP, Exceed Corporation, Jeffery Brown Contracting, Millenium 2 Autoglass, Cigna, Consolidated Health Services, Eastern Moving and Storage, Evergreen Health Cooperative, Fisher Wealth Strategies, SC&H Group, Dr. Scott Hagaman and Incite Creative.
In the end, we were able to raise over $65,000 for The Children’s Guild.
