Charity Golf Tournament

3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Third Annual Golf Tournament

On August 18th, Correctional Industries and the Washington State Combined Fund Drive (CFD) hosted our 3rd annual charity golf tournament at Eagles Pride Golf Course in Dupont.

Prior to the big day, our committee worked extremely hard to secure sponsorships and donations and to recruit CI and DOC players. Many employees and sites also contributed to the event through donations. Thank you to everyone at AHCC, CBCC, CCCC, CRCC, HQ, MIS, MCC, SCCC, WCC, WCCW, and WSP for sending donations.

Silent Auction Gift Baskets

The tournament field was at capacity, with 36 teams and a total of 143 players, including many CI and DOC staff. The day started off with a light breakfast and putting competition. Players also had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items and purchase additional hole competitions.

The weather was beautiful, not too hot and even a slight breeze by the end of the day. Upon returning to the club house, players enjoyed refreshments, continued to bid on auction items, and were treated to a BBQ dinner.

The top three teams took home amazing golf plaques, courtesy of SCCC, and a round of golf at local courses. Individual hole competition awards were quickly followed by silent auction winning bids and finally, the highly anticipated door-prize raffle.

Proceeds to Charity

When the final tally was counted, the tournament raised over $22K! The winning team got the honor of selecting a charity to receive $1,000. The remaining proceeds were split between the Behind The Badge Foundation and Homeless Backpacks. ■
