The 10th annual OES Charity Golf Tournament was held on August 13, 2010 at Whispering Firs Golf Course, McChord AFB, Washington. The tournament supported the OES Scholarship Fund and Tacoma Valley Rite Care Program which supports the Children’s Therapy Unit at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup, Washington. Approximately $4,800 will be donated to these charities.
Fifteen teams competed – 6 mens teams and 9 mixed teams. A total of 57 golfers participated and 40 additional members and friends attended the festivities after the tournament. 43 Chapters, businesses and individuals sponsored the tournament for a total $3,075.00. A raffle was held after the tournament which included several hotel stays, rounds of golf, dinners and services. We thank all the chapters, individuals and businesses for their support. Water was donated by Pepsi, pies by Shari’s and doughnuts by Krispy Kreme.
A special thank you to Darlene Wiggins, Margie Bunge, Ann Gates, Sandy Henry, Janet Sebastian, Lillian Gallion, Bill Davis, Robin Erickson, Michelle Burlison, Mary Ellen Sparks, Clayton Sparks, Linda Miller, Laura Thomas and Cindy Sims who helped to make this tournament a success.

Something unique happened during our tournament. Ken Hayes got a “hole in one” on the 12th hole. This is something that all golfers hope for but many never attain. We congratulate Ken on his achievement.
The 11th Annual Tournament will be scheduled for the 2nd Friday of August 2011 – mark your calendar now and join us. We are looking at changing the format to 2-person teams – Hopefully, this will allow more people to play along with making the play a little faster. Plan to join us!!
