Courier Article for July 2019
by Toni Fisher, Public Relations Director
Friendly Competition Means Fun for All
We happily discovered that even the weatherman is a great supporter of our Sun City Foundation by making sure that the weather for our June 7 Annual Golf Tournament was better than we could have imagined. Cool, sunny weather, good friends and devoted golfers added up to a most enjoyable day for all who participated. Foundation Director Kent Hilburn added some new features this year, providing some new challenges that enhanced the experience.
One of the goals of the Foundation Golf Tournament is to meet that part of our Mission Statement which aims to satisfy the social needs of our residents. A side benefit is that any funds raised support many of our other programs supporting the physical needs of residents. We thank everyone who supported the event by participating. Several local businesses contributed to the event and also deserve our thanks. Topping the list of generous supporters is Realtor and Sun City resident, Lenora Harrison, a supporter of many events over the years, deserving special thanks. Others businesses who also deserve our gratitude are Bright Star Care; Electrick Motorsports; Gilchrist Golf Carts; Pelican Hauling and Junk Removal; and, Sun Oak Living.
We are very appreciative of the support provided by several of our Sun City Clubs and Groups. The Soccer Club, Boomers, Fine Arts Club, Sun City Garden Club, Golden Niners, Needle Arts, Pickleball Club, Sun City Singers, Sun City Roseville Tennis Club and the Veterans Club all donated generously to help guarantee a successful event.
Special individuals also donated generously and we thank them for their support. Helen and Coach Bisenius, Robert Eggerts and Carolyn and Lee Pittman provided donations that definitely helped the tournament succeed.
Keeping to the topic of enjoyable events meeting the social needs of our residents, August 11 is the date for the second annual Bingo! Event. The afternoon is an opportunity to enjoy friends and family as you hope to win cash prizes!
