LUMBER CITY — The 16th annual Glendale Education Foundation Golf Tournament was held June 10 at Eagles Ridge Golf Course.
In a team scramble format, two foursomes tied with low scores of 58 — and a playoff score card went to the fifth tiebreaker hole for the team of Brett Miller, Bucky Miller, Rick Holes and Dan Holes to be declared winners of the “Snyder Cup” — narrowly defeating the second-place team of Rich Metzger, Justin Ohler, Curt Mellon and Mark Emery.
Proximity winners were: Long drives — Josh Norris (Fairway No. 1) and Bucky Miller (No. 18); longest putts — Mark Emmery (Hole No. 3), Vance Kimberly (Hole No. 7) and James Sawyer (Hole No. 15); closest to the pin—Matt Pajonk (Hole No. 17); and closest second shot- Nick Ninosky (Hole No. 9) and Christian Kuhn (Hole No. 11).
Glendale Education Foundation executive director Richard Snyder, overseeing his final golf tournament pending his retirement at year’s end, reported that a record profit of more than $14,400 in net proceeds was achieved for the 16th consecutive year.
“I am still overwhelmed by the generosity by 100 of our golfers who come out and participated in on-course games and purchased thousands of raffle tickets for baskets, 50/50 and large items donated by Walmart Distribution Center,” Snyder said.
“Combined with over 130 tournament sponsors made up of local businesses, organizations, alumni and individuals who have donated 80% of our total profit this year! Knowing the community like I do, I really shouldn’t be amazed … as many donors continually dig deep when it comes to supporting the children of Glendale through our foundation. We use this outing as our largest annual fundraiser to help subsidize learning opportunities and reward academic success for the students of Glendale School District.”
Foundation president Rick Holes announced that this golf event was dedicated in memory of two friends of the foundation who participated in the outing over the years — Mike Vereshack and Mark Harpster — who passed away last year.
