For the first time in its three-year history, golfers playing in the WOHF Golf Classic presented by AmericanWest Bank weren't slogging through the rain. The gloom that shrouded the area earlier in the week had completely cleared by the time the tournment started on Saturday, June 15, leaving nothing but blue skies and brilliant sunshine for the 67 golfers from around the state. The event was a success for the Foundation, rasing in the neighborhood of $40,000 — but it was also a great success for the players, who got to play in "pristine Pacific Northwest conditions," according to Ruth Abate, Foundation Director.
Another first for the event — the Seattle King County team that included Dr. Steve Olson, Dr. Edmund Kwan, Dr. Steve Kwan and Dr. Robert Walker took the Component Cup honors away from Clark County. WSDA President Dr. Danny Warner and his team vowed to reclaim it again next year, though.
The annual Golf Classic raises money for Foundation programs with Boys & Girls Clubs around the state.
