VALLEYLIFE’s 27th Annual Golf Tournament was held the first weekend of March at Ocotillo Golf Resort in Chandler. For the third year, VALLEYLIFE’s tournament was dedicated to Aidan Warrington, a long-time supporter of VALLEYLIFE. It was a beautiful day and players had a great time.
At registration, players were given a chance to purchase raffle tickets for some great prizes including getaways, golf outings and gift baskets. Contests and activities were held throughout the tournament. Dinner was served when the golfers returned to the clubhouse. After short remarks from VALLEYLIFE’s President and CEO, Cletus Thiebeau and Director of Fund Development, Margaret Stephens-Reed, an awards ceremony was held.
The Fruth Group foursome won first place again this year with a team score of 57. Coming in second was Cash, Sullivan and Cross, and close behind in third place was Rush Truck Center. Gompers won the Most Honest award again this year. Other award winners included Closest to the Pin, Marty Block; Men’s Longest Drive, Jason Lucero; and Woman’s Longest Drive, Brenda Heyink. The program concluded with the announcement of the raffle winners.
