TRCF golf tourney raises record

The 25th annual Three Rivers Community Foundation golf tournament resulted in $100,000 for the foundation’s endowment that is used to give scholarships and to award grant requests.

This recent tournament raised $50,000, which was matched by the Initiative Fund, a regional community foundation.

The $100,000 brings the Three Rivers Community Foundation close to having $1 million in the foundation’s endowment.

The best-ball golf tournament attracted 148 players and was won by the team of Dave Brinker, Tim Jensen, Ted Udden and Dennis Sipe.

The tournament not only brought in a record $50,000, but it was the biggest in tournament history.

Charles (Chuck) Christian launched the tournament 25 years ago for the subcontractors of Christian Builders.   This year, Christian, his daughter, Robin, and Bob Deiley and their committee helped make the tournament the most successful  in  its 25-year history.
