Sandy and Estacada Lions declare benefit a success

The second annual golf tournament brought in twice the funds as its first year

The Sandy and Estacada Lions Clubs are celebrating a successful annual benefit event.

The benefit was a golf tournament, held Saturday, Aug. 2, at Eagle Creek Golf Course.

Sandy Lions Club Secretary John Taylor said the event was a resounding success, bringing in twice the proceeds as last year’s event.

“If we can do this every year, then the sky’s the limit,” Taylor said.

Taylor said the event’s success was due to an increased number of teams participating in the tournament and a large number of community businesses investing in advertising and the donation of gift certificates for the raffle.

Businesses that participated include Hoodview Security, Clackamas County Bank, Fred’s RV, Grocery Outlet, Deane’s Auto Repair, Les Schwab, Calamity Jane’s, George’s Sandy Muffler and Brakes, Geren’s Farm Supply, Pioneer Barber Shop, Sandy Napa Auto, Boring Bark, Ivy Bear Pizza and many more.

The money made from the fundraiser event will go toward future Lions Club community involvement.
