The Sandy Club’s 10th Annual Charity Golf Tournament was hosted on Monday, August 12th at River Oaks Golf Course in Sandy. The tournament was an OUTSTANDING SUCCESS with over 20 teams participating. The tournament included gift cards for the winning teams, raffle prizes (including trips, tools, golf gear, and gift cards), putting contests, long drive competition, and a Hole in One contest for $10,000!
We cannot say enough about how much we appreciate the support we receive from local and national companies and individuals who take money out of their budgets and time out of their day to support our vision of giving kids a safe place to learn and grow. To everyone who has supported us before and to those who supported us at this tournament: You are a hero. Thank you.
