Goodwill hosted its 14th Annual Golf Classic this past Monday at Shadow Ridge. Nearly 150 golfers braved the gusty winds and high temperatures to hit that little white ball in support of Goodwill.

For the first time in its history, all 37 foursomes supported the event at the Corporate Gold level. The numbers aren’t final, but the revenue for the golf tournament before expenses is almost $70,000. That’s a lot of community support for the Goodwill mission. Each year, the tournament’s proceeds help fund additional positions and resources for Employment and Training programs. Since its inception, the Goodwill Golf Classic has raised nearly $300,000 in support these areas.

Many thanks to all of the sponsors, businesses, employees and volunteers who helped make this event such a big success! Special thanks to this year’s event assistants who braved near-100 degree temperatures to make sure all the golfers had a great time. From running the course challenges, to providing transportation, to hanging out with celebrity golfer John Knicely, the day couldn’t have happened without them.

We’ll have more photos to come next week!
