2022 Erie Golf Tournament a Success!

The Friends of Tri-Valley Foundation held their annual central golf tournament for 2022 on Saturday, June 11th at the Horizons at Prairie Ridge Golf Course in Erie. The weather made for a perfect day of golfing. Play began at 9 am with fifteen teams.

The tournament was a four-person scramble with three flights. The winners for A Flight were: 1st Place - the team of Dan Bruner, Brad Piley, Steve Klotzbach, and Mike Hofer;

and 2nd Place - the team of James Works, Steve Lucke, Travis Larson, ad Jackson Taylor.

The winners for B Flight were: 1st Place – the team of Wally Maples, Mike Prince, Jake Scott, and Scott Cochran;

and 2nd Place - the team of Beto Melendez, Travis McCall, Ron Herder, and Chase Butcher.

The winners for C Flight were: 1st Place – the team of Mike Walsh, Bill Myers, Kelly Spiva, and Chad Andres;

and 2nd Place – the team of Sean McReynolds, David Wells, Joe Bauer, and Derrick Onnen.

Along with the three flights, prizes were handed out for the Longest Drive (which went to Jake Scott) and Closet to the Pin (which went to Thad Wells). Players were given the opportunity to try their chances with the “Trouble” Hole In One game. We also brought back the popular “Betcha Can’t Get on the Green” hole game.

All money raised from the event goes toward the Foundation’s mission of providing quality and affordable homes for our neighbors with intellectual/developmental disabilities in the eight counties of Allen, Bourbon, Chautauqua, Elk, Greenwood, Neosho, Wilson, and Woodson. Since 2001, the Foundation has built six houses and acquired six houses and a duplex. The 13 houses are home to 62 of our neighbors with intellectual/developmental disabilities.

“Without the generosity of our communities, this fun event could not have been held. Thank you to all the golfers who participated as well as to our event sponsors: corporate, hole, and in-kind. It is friends like you that allow us to provide services to our neighbors with I/DD and to help them achieve the quality of life they seek. Thank you” stated Special Projects Coordinator, Tricia Campbell.
