Golf Tournament Recap

The 8th Annual Golf Tournament benefiting the local chapter of the Make-A-Wish foundation was another huge success.  This year’s event was held at Deer Creek Golf Course and had 90 golfers participate, along with the help of over 20 volunteers.  Food and beverage donations were made possible by generous donations from Krispy Kreme, Starbucks, Tallgrass brewery, and Shannon Winckler.  The event concluded with a banquet where Rayna, our Make-A-Wish adoptee, spoke and thanked the crowd for their donations.  She was very excited to have the opportunity to transform her backyard into a world class play area.  In the end, the event raised approximately $8,500!

Thanks to everyone who came out and made this a truly special event!  We hope to see you next year!

Kickoff Meeting Recap

Our annual ASCE YMG Kickoff Meeting at Waldo Pizza was a huge success!  With over 30 people in attendance, ideas and plans for the upcoming year were shared, pizza was eaten, and joy and merriment was had by all!  Thanks for coming, and we hope to see you at the October meeting, or one of our other upcoming events!
