With gratitude to the larger community, we joyfully announce that $9,300 was raised in the recent charity golf tournament at The Rim Golf Club for the benefit of the Mount Cross Lutheran Church building fund.
With a limited amount of golfers in our church family, but with a large number of non-golfers who came later in the afternoon, this is an amazing achievement.
We are indebted to many businesses and friends in this community, and outside the area, who helped make this event both successful and fun. First of all, the businesses and friends who sponsored the tees were paramount. They include A Better Connection, Alan Douglas for the Mount Cross Building Committee, CCBG Architects, Chapman Auto Center, Ross Hage for Edward Jones, Frazer, Ryan, Goldberg & Arnold Law Offices, Linda and Steve Loy, Leona and Ron Nelson, PostNet, Laree and Arch Rambeau, Reifschneider Enterprises, LP, Paul Meir for Thrivent and Marc Apps for United Country Realty.
In addition we were greatly aided by the wonderful set of prizes that were raffled and won by the skill of the golfers. They were provided by Mary and Dan Adams, Anytime Fitness, Ayothaya, Ben Brunner, Best Western Payson Inn, Beverage Place, Chili’s, Dominoes, El Rancho, Greg Grosser, Macky’s, Linda Grosser for Mary
