25th Golf Classic Raises over $50k

The numbers are in and United Way is excited to announce the 25th Anniversary of the Golf Classic in Memory of John Wichers raised over $50,000 for community re-investment!

United Way’s Community Fund is the source of grants to many local human service organizations to help run program for people and families. Focus is placed on programs which relieve poverty, encourage healthy lifestyles and promote positive child and youth development.

“This is also United Way’s 75th year of service to the community,” said Trudy Carrels, Executive Director for United Way. “It’s a happy coincidence that these two milestones overlapped this year. We’re tremendously thankful for the support of our tournament planning committee, our sponsors and the players in raising these funds.”
