Camas, WA — On Saturday, September 14, the Camas Athletic Boosters Club will hold its annual Tom Wallenborn Golf Tournament and charity auction at Camas Meadows Golf Club.
This will be the 13th annual golf tournament and charity auction, which raises significant money for local athletic programs. Registration begins at 7:15 am, and the tournament begins at 8:30 am.
“It’ll be another great event,” said Ryan Dickerson, of the Camas Athletics Boosters Club. “Last year, about 150 players came 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. Also this year we will be having a meal after the golf tournament. At the meal we will be having a live auction and many different raffles to raise money. Tickets will be on sale at the event. If people are interested in coming to the lunch and auction please email the boosters — we’d love to see you there.”
The objective of the golf tournament is to raise funds to supplement any needs of the student athletics programs from middle school level up through high school. The club also provides money for scholarships that the boosters gives away each year for seniors who are continuing to college.
Dickerson said community members are free to come walk around and enjoy the afternoon.
“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.”
