Teeing Up Futures: Oregon’s First Annual Golf Benefit

On Monday, Sept. 12 College Possible Oregon was joined by 93 golfers at Stone Creek Golf Club for our first annual golf benefit that raised $62,000 in support of future college graduates from Oregon. We lucked out with wonderful weather and everyone had fun, no matter how their game was going that day. All in all, we were able to raise a significant amount for students in Oregon through event sponsorships, individual tickets, generous donations and in-kind gifts.

This event never could have happened without Thomas Bookman and Geneva Stegemoller, our event co-chairs. We are incredibly grateful for their time and leadership. Thanks also go to all the event committee members: Jon Loomis, Sarah Mathenia, Jeremy Snyder, and Sharon Wynde.

Please enjoy photos from the day:
