The Glacier Technology 10th Annual Golf Outing was held a little earlier than usual this year, which meant the temperatures were higher than ever before, with a heat index of 107 degrees. Another first was Glacier Technology’s decision to turn the event into a fundraiser for a local non-profit organization that works to change the lives of at-risk teens.
Considering that the winning score was 35, it is fair to say the only thing that was hot that day was the weather. The winners, Team Hannah – Bob Hannah (team captain) and Cindy, Patrick, and Lee, struggled to get below par. Of course that means the other nine teams that played were really affected by the heat and shot well over par.
Again, Iceman, Scott Clausen showed why ice runs through his veins as he shivered and missed almost every critical putt that needed to be made.
As always, the highlight of the event was the gourmet dinner put on by Chef Jon and Heather Terry. Since 60 people were fed at this year’s event, the amount of grilling required was
considerable. Adding to the challenge was a torrential down pour and high winds. These conditions meant that three people were required at the grill – one to hold the umbrella, one to hold the grill top open, and the chef to work his magic.
Glacier Technology is proud to have raised close to $3000 for Tree House, a local non-profit that provides invaluable support and services for the community.
The vision of Tree House is to reach every at-risk teen so they are loved, feel hope and realize life transformation. To accomplish this vision they seek to fulfill their mission to bring living hope to hurting youth and families leading to life transformation.
At the end of the day, the outing proved to be a great time that raised money for a great cause!
