Edmarc Charity Golf Tournament

Edmarc 16th Annual Charity Golf ClassicOn August 16th , our friends from the Edmarc Golf Committee coordinated the Annual Edmarc Charity Golf Classic. It was a gorgeous day at Cypress Creek Golfer’s Club in Smithfield, and spirits were high as friends and business associates gathered to raise money for our kids. The Edmarc Golf Classic is truly special. It is different from other charities — it is not just about the money; we have no celebrity spokesperson to rally the community. We rely on the dedication of committee members — Jeff Boynton and Clayton Jenson, Co-chairs of the event, Noel Talcott, Don Smith, Bud Brame, Dorothy Jenson, Daniel Pabon, Jess Plank and Debbie Stitzer Brame who gave their time to make this a fun event for the golfers and all who participated. The Larmore Family joined us at this year’s tournament. They shared their many ‘ups’ and ‘downs’ in their son Ian’s cancer journey. Ian is living proof that children are ressiliant and miracles do happen. It was evident that everyone understood the real reason for the event and why it is so important to support Edmarc. This year we had the good fortune to have Tri City Developers step up as our Premier Sponsor. Corman Marine Construction, First Team Auto and KPMG were our Partnering Sponsors. Joining in the list of were Allied Concrete Products, Cashman, CHUBB and Bud Brame, Davies Commercial Masonry, HBH Industrial Services, LifeNet Health, McLean Contracting Company and Q.E.D. Systems as Golf Cart Sponsors. And for the first time we had Hertz Equipment Rental sponsor our Par Prizes. In addition we want to say thank you to our Beverage Sponsors, G.W.R.R.A and William Harper, DDS, Vandeventer Black and Peter & White Constructions. We were also fortunate to have a long list of hole sponsors too. Baxter Simmons and Baxter’s Sports Lounge provided the fabulous meal at the awards dinner along with our dear friends from the Kiwanis Club of Mercury 64 who helped underwrite the dinner. And we had, by far, the best prize packages for the top finishers in the tournament, along with some very special raffle prizes donated by area businesses and silent auction. At the end of day, when all was said and done, $40,000 was raised! Wow!!! Heartfelt thanks to all the committee members, volunteers, sponsors and all who participated in this year’s event that helped make it the best ever. The Edmarc Charity Golf Classic is truly “FORE OUR KIDS.”
