Dozens of sponsors gathered together on Friday, June 24, 2022, for a golf tournament at Eagle Falls. The annual event featured more than 100 competitors, taking part in supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Cascade County.
Sonya Smith, director of the Boys & Girls Club, said, "Everybody in Montana seems to love to play golf, but ultimately, I think for us, people love to support our cause, and they're coming here for our charity event and they're having a lot of fun. It's not terribly serious, mostly fun, and I think that's the draw.
The tournament consisted of 18 holes total. The group that scores the most under par wins the whole tournament. Part of the tournament also featured a game of Yahtzee and poker.
Smith said, "Any of these fundraisers that we do help to support gaps in our budget or help to support areas in our budget that's not funded by a grant or other source, and there are quite a few gaps at times where we need to fill a spot and pay for some unrestricted funds, and fundraisers do just that."
She continued, "We had our largest crowd yet, and I think everybody came out of the course smiling and had a great time. The weather was absolutely perfect and everybody had a grand time, so thank you to everyone."
