Each year, we get together with our sponsors and go all out, hosting a big golf tournament for our customers. With St. George featuring many idyllic golf courses, the opportunity to experience these local treasures is a fun and memorable experience for our custoemrs no matter their skill level.
RAISING MONEY FOR LOCAL CHARITIES
By holding a raffle and other ways of donation, we choose a local charity each year to feature at the golf tournament. We love being able to use this opportunity to raise money and awareness for the chosen charity and honor it as a way to give back to the community.
In 2016, the tournament was held in April at The Ledges. A chilly morning gave way to a beautiful southern Utah afternoon. A lunch and raffle were held after the golfing ended. Many great prizes were handed out, from golfing gear to TV's and the catered lunch and drinks were a refreshing end to the day.
For this year's charity, we raised just under $7,000 in donations for the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention. Check out the video from the event below to see the highlights from our 2016 Tonaquint Golf Classic.
In 2015, the tournament was held in April at Sand Hollow Resort. The weather started out cold, but once the sun rose, it was a perfect day of golf. A lunch and raffle were held after the golfing ended. Many great prizes were handed out, from golf gear to TV's and the pulled pork sandwiches, cookies, chips, and drinks were a refreshing end to the day.
For this year's charity, we raised over $7,000 in donations for Believe for Britton, a fund for a local high school athlete who was critically injured in an ATV accident and spend many weeks in a coma. We are proud to see his recovery and rehabilitation unfold, and the amount of support and outreach from those in attendance was very heart touching. Brittons sister said a few words and expressed her gratitude. We and many others were impressed by this touching experience and the indelible mark it left on this years gathering.
