It doesn’t get much better than a day of golf on a beautiful summer day- except if that golf tournament is raising money for a charity to inspire kids to get out and play sports- over $19,000 to be exact! The 2nd annual InSports Foundation golf tournament was held on June 20th, 2015 at the Monticello Country Club.
This summer’s tournament was a huge success for InSports. With over 100 golfers signed up, it was bound to be an exciting day. For $25 the golfers could buy the InPack, which included two mulligans and a raffle ticket to have a chance to win a variety of prizes! Along with the raffle was our silent auction. The auction included items ranging from wine & food gift baskets, signed football helmets and hockey sticks, to a range of different golf course foursomes.
Tee times started at 12 o’clock sharp and everyone was ready to get out and play. We had an array of sponsors at different holes that were able to share their services as well as helping us with ours. Summit Chiropractic practiced free massages for the golfers with a long day of playing ahead of them, and the InSports booth hosted a social media contest where guests could take a photo in our InSports Instagram cutout!
After a long day of golfing, guests were invited back to the clubhouse to make their final bids on the silent auction, and accept their awards for men & women’s long drive and longest putt, closest to the pin, and closest to the gin!
The InSports team was so proud to put on a successful event! We want to thank all of our sponsors once again for contributing to our goal in getting 10,000 kids in 3 years to get in the game, as well as everyone who participated and volunteered to make this golf tournament a hole in one!
