2017 Memorial Tournament, Another Success!

It goes without saying that the Laguna Woods Men's Golf Club members are active
participants because we enjoy playing golf. Yet, when being a golf enthusiast results in helping those in our community with a donation, we beam with pride for our love of golf.  Yes, the 2017 Memorial Golf Tournament
, put on by the LWMGC to honor our deceased members in partnership with the Laguna Woods Village, raised more than $43,500 for the Foundation of Laguna Woods Village!

A successful fund raiser does not happen by chance.  Hard work, a great partnership and the generosity of members and sponsors contributed to this tremendous success story.  Early in the planning of this event, Brad Hudson, CEO of Village Management Services, Inc. (VMS) agreed to partnering with LWMGC in the planning and execution of this event.  Lori Moss, Community Manager and her staff led by Brian Gruner, Recreation and Special Events Director, gave generously of their time, expertise, resources and contacts to assist in making the 2017 Memorial Golf Tournament the most successful ever!  Their commitment supported by the efforts of Board of Director member Dave Schmidli and the team that assisted him allowed this tournament to exceed it's fundraising and participation expectations.  In addition, the wonderful meal prepared by Jolanda, the great raffle and auction items capped by a trip to Hawaii, the music of Doug Houston and great weather added to the total success of this tournament.

Thirty-one sponsors donated over $37,000 for everything from hats and shirts to tee signs.  Without these sponsors this triumphant fund raising event would not have happened.  Please support our generous Sponsors for this tournament as well as for the manual we receive each year!  Finally, we must thank the 217 players and 277 dinner guests; each contributed to the wonderful golf, fundraising success and the fun evening of this 'classy' and successful occasion.

Let's not forget the winners, after all, this was a golf tournament.  The triumphant
