Teeing off to Fight Hunger

FBR’s Young Associate Board (YAB) kicked off their” fun”raising efforts with a bang this July. In conjunction with our upcoming Joe Sakic golf tourny, the YAB organized their own unique golf experience, and it went off without a hitch.

On July 31st, Event Co-Chairs, Ryan Good & Whit Patterson, and a crew of others met at Denver’s Harvard Gulch Golf Course for an afternoon and night full of golf, food, an ample supply of beverages, live band entertainment, more golf, bagpipers extraordinaire, more food, more beverages, contests, awards and socializing. Over 100 golfers and volunteers showed up to enjoy the day and partner together in the fight against hunger. And that they did. Nearly 13,000 meals were provided as a result of the efforts of everyone involved – outstanding!

Special thanks to Ryan Good, Whit Patterson, Scott Einberger, Chad Lisowe, Lynn Scherler, Maria Carabajal, Buck Seggelke, Angela Coleman, Megan James, Harvard Gulch Golf Course, Jackson Lamb & his crew of volunteers for doing the cooking and donating the much appreciated food, Jacob’s Creek Sparking Wine and Uptown Brothers Brewing Company. Special congrats to Grant Patrick who won the tournament, gifting him a spot in the Sakic tournament next week.
Can’t wait to see what next year’s tournament brings!

ConFunkcius donated their time and talents for the length of the tourny.

Most of the participants ponied up for the many contest holes offered throughout the day. Nearly every hole had something to entertain the golfers.

Special thanks to Jackson Lamb and his crew for feeding the masses!

Our friends, Mile Highlanders, brought special energy to the day while they paraded around the course.

Thanks to Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Wine, a toast was given and $1 per glass was donated to FBR.

This hole contest included throwing your club as far as humanly possible.

Buck made his presence known wherever he went.

We were pleased with the even representation of both men and women at this tournament.

The “not at all tacky” trophy was coveted by all.

The golf committee handed out awards toward the end of the day.
