2019 Golf Classic
Our sixteenth annual Riverside Fall Golf Classic was a great day! Our event was held at Ames Golf & Country Club on September 20. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed lunch, golf, fellowship, and of course, ice cream to conclude the day. We are gathering our totals for sponsorships, giving, and other gifts and expect to be able to report a generous amount raised to support the ministry of Riverside and all that God is doing here!
Participants arrived to be greeted by our team, signed up for the Hula Hole (gave a 100 yard advantage for the tee-off), Mulligans, the bocce ball contest; they received their custom Riverside golf ball, and golf polo. We then convened to eat lunch together while Chris Dahl, our executive director, gave a short program and gave thanks for the day. We didn't have any hole-in-ones but a couple golfers came very close. We thank Thrivent for their presence at hole #14 and for the give-aways they had available to participants. We also are especially grateful to Oakland Corporation for their long history of being a major event sponsor!
Planning is already underway for next year's event. If you want an early start in coordinating your sponsorship for next year, pease call Cheri Schendel-Hennager at 515-733-5271 and she'd be glad to work with you. Until then, see you on the course in fall 2020!
