Genesis Development in Storm Lake had a beautiful day for their 4th annual charity golf tournament at Sunrise Pointe Golf Course. Twenty-five teams of golfers enjoyed the great weather and networking opportunities all while supporting a very good cause.
The day’s activities included golfing, a meal, a silent auction and a raffle. All of the proceeds from the tournament go to support Genesis Development of Storm Lake. This year, the tournament raised over $10,000.
Tournament organizer, Sarah Bartling said, “Most of the money goes towards our Discovery program. We use it to go to places like sports games, the zoo and other places. Our folks have the biggest say in how we use the money to benefit them.”
The whole community of Storm Lake gets into the fundraiser through golfing in the tournament, sponsoring a hole, donating items for the silent auction, selling raffle tickets and putting up flyers for the event.
In addition to the communities involvement in the golf tournament, there are many volunteers that are needed to make an event like this like this happen. From prepping, setting up, serving food, cleaning up, to many other things, there is always something for a volunteer to do. Many of our members also come out to help with grilling, serving food and making sure everyone has a great time.
“This is a great fundraiser and community event and we look forward to continuing it for many, many years. Thank you to everyone that helps make this possible.” said Bartling.
