Camas, WA — This Saturday, the Camas Athletic Boosters Club will hold its annual Tom Wallenborn Golf Classic and charity auction at Camas Meadows Golf Club.
This will be the 12th annual golf tournament and charity auction, which raises significant money for local athletic programs.
“Again this year it is a sold out field,” said Ryan Dickerson, of the Camas Athletics Boosters Club. “144 players are coming out for a fun round of golf supporting our local athletes. Last year, we raised a little over $58,000 and are hoping to beat this number this year. The golf tournament is sold out but if people have any interest in coming to the auction portion of the afternoon please feel free to email us at email@example.com.”
Dickerson said community members are free to come walk around and enjoy the afternoon. The auction begins at 2:30 at Camas Meadows.
“We have many local businesses that have sponsored this tournament and many of the different sports teams have put together baskets and different items for the auction,” he said. “We have some great trips, vacation homes, football games, and reserved 50 yard line seats with parking at the remaining Camas home games.”
