With 147 golfers present, Monday, September 23rd was a beautiful day to spend at a golf tournament.
The Annual Central Tech Foundation Ron Vandever Memorial Golf Tournament was held at the Buffalo Rock Golf & Venue in Cushing.
SpiritBank, Premier Truck Group, and Walmart sponsored this year’s tournament. The response was outstanding with 70 business and community sponsors at the platinum, gold, silver and bronze levels.
This year’s tournament realized $24,000 net proceeds! The proceeds are used to provide scholarships to Central Tech students as they develop new technical careers for future employment.
Last year, the foundation was able to provide financial assistance to 44 individuals from 17 of our local communities. That’s all because of the success of this one fundraising event.
With two flights of golfers in each round, the tournament was spread out over the morning and afternoon.
