Thank you to everyone who braved the elements on Saturday, July 22nd to attend our 56th Annual Golf Tournament! Although we started our morning with classic Seattle summer rain, everyone persevered through the storm to see the sun that awaited us at the end of a brilliant day of golf!
Thank you to our generous sponsors! Dragonfish Asian Cafe provided the delicious yakisoba lunch for our hungry golfers and Itoen graciously sponsored the 19th Hole Awards Ceremony and Dinner. Delta Air Lines sponsored our Chipping, Putting, and Hole-In-One Contests and donated the amazing raffle grand prize. ANA, Achilles, CalPortland, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, Lane Powell, Ecore Global, Hurry Curry of Tokyo, Accucela, Union Bank, Sojitz, and Port of Everett were our tee-to-green sponsors! The driving range was sponsored by Jamco and the New York Life Insurance Company provided golf balls. Kohtoku Enterprise, Inc., Pacific Lumber & Shipping LLC, Toray, and the Mitsubishi Corporation sponsored golf carts for everyone to cruise around the sprawling Redmond Ridge Golf Course. A huge thank you to everyone who donated auction and raffle items, as well as our tireless volunteers! And of course, thanks to all of the players who came to play golf in the rain! We could not have done this without any of you!
