Fundraiser for food bank nets $13,000
The Columbia Pacific Food Bank raised close to $13,000 during the 30th annual Barbara Bullis Memorial Golf Tournament, an annual fundraiser organized as a benefit to the nonprofit organization, on Monday, Sept. 12.
The tournament fundraiser was also recognized as the kickoff event for a capital campaign to build a new distribution center for the food bank, a press release from the food bank stated Monday.
Organizers for the event had a goal of raising $10,000, a figure that was exceeded thanks in part to personal donations, business sponsors and tournament participants.
The proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to provide the equivalent of 39,000 meals for those in need, the release added. The following teams were recognized as winners of the tournament: Mens Team Richardsons Furniture Fellas; Womens Team Wacky Women of Wildwood (Sandy Bullis and friends); Mixed Team Teeth Grinders (Rex Murray and friends); Highest Scored Can We Lend You a Club (US Bank).
