Much needed at the tail-end of a long hot summer, but not so much when you are running a golf tournament to raise money for a children’s charity.
But with the support of firefighters and the communities of Woodinville and Bothell, the inaugural 2015 Firefighter Charity Golf Tourney exceeded its fund-raising targets for the Children’s Country Home.
And it served up a good time too, despite the gray skies.
Here is a montage of what some of the participants had to say, as well as a few photos of the day:
We learned of the Children’s Country Home in 2005 after the car Ed’s 8-year-old daughter was riding in was hit by a drunk driver in downtown Woodinville and she suffered a traumatic brain injury. We will be forever grateful for all of the love and support they provided us during that very difficult time. Thank you again for such a fun day! We’ll look forward to next year’s tournament.

Thank you so much for including me in the tourney. The weather was not ideal, but the company, the golf and the organizations that benefitted from it were spectacular.
– Brad Davis, tournament participant
After enjoying a day of golf and an evening repast of ribs with all the accompaniments, the golfers took part in a mini, yet robust live auction that truly makes a difference for the children in our home. Thank you for your amazing generosity!

I had a great time at the inaugural golf tournament! I thought the shamble format was really good and different. It kept the pace of play quick. I also liked not having to keep track of how many tee shots were used, keeping track of string or mulligans. I’m already looking forward to next year!
