2019 Golf Classic Recap
August 29, 2019
24 years of golf, 24 years of giving. We were blessed this year with a sunny day for golf with friends and supporters of Homeward Bound.
We began planning, making calls, and sending letters for the golf event in December. Our donors are tolerant of our wanting to discuss golf while the snow is on the ground. Those that graciously give to the people we serve at Homeward Bound continue to grow with each passing year. It is important to acknowledge our wonderful Development Team (Liz Trombley and Kristine Morin) who work hard to make sure this event is one of the best golf tournaments in the Twin Cities.
This year, the first place winners were the Scates Real Estate Team. Second place went to the Holmes Murphy Team and third place to Geritom Medical.
Another highlight was Terry Severns-Williams who spoke so eloquently about his daughter Brittany. He spoke about their family and the 30 plus years Homeward Bound has supported Brittany. She previously used our respite program and now resides at Brooklyn Park.
This year’s Community Service Award went to Luther Automotive Group which have supported Homeward Bound and our golf classic since 2002! Thank you Luther Automotive Group for your kind and generous spirit!
This year’s event netted over $88,000 and we want to celebrate this year’s success with all of you who support this event through your sponsorships, donations, and volunteering.
