Calling all those who LIKE to golf and LOVE a good reason to do so. The inaugural Co-ops Care Charity Golf Tournament, co-hosted by Victory Electric and Wheatland Electric, is great way to bring everyone together to raise funds for two worthy causes!
We welcome all businesses, organizations and individuals to participate in the tournament scheduled for Friday, September 13, at the Golf Club at Southwind in Garden City beginning at 9 a.m. The tournament format will be a 4-man scramble, shotgun start with a $100/player entry fee, which includes a light breakfast, lunch, beverage tickets, registration gift bag, and the opportunity to win hole prizes and flighted tournament prizes. To register, please contact Nolan at Wheatland Electric at 620-275-4080 / firstname.lastname@example.org or Jerri at Victory Electric at 620-371-7730 / email@example.com.
This year’s tournament proceeds will be divided to benefit two area nonprofit organizations: Friends of Wright Park Zoo in Dodge City and Wheatland Electric’s Cram the Van food drive. Each organization is focused on giving back and making a positive difference in their communities so we all have a better place to live, work and play.
Friends of the Wright Park Zoo is raising funds for a zoo revitalization project aimed at creating a more enriching environment for the animals in the zoo’s care, updating habitats, and educating the community with unique experiences. The zoo currently entertains more than 60,000 visitors per year from Dodge City, the surrounding counties, and even out-of-state visitors. Home to about 126 animals, the zoo’s animals represent approximately 30 species from nearly every continent on earth.
Wheatland Electric’s Cram the Van food drive program started five years ago in response to an appeal from cooperative members who wished to have a method to help other members within their own communities. The big, red Cram the Van van travels each fall to several communities across western and central Kansas including Holcomb, Tribune, Great Bend, Scott City, Caldwell and Conway Springs collecting donations and non-perishable food items. In the five years since the program began, more than 32 tons of food has been donated to local food banks in the city/county in which it was donated.
We offer several sponsorship opportunities. If your organization is interested in helping support our charity efforts by sponsoring the golf tournament, please review and return the sponsorship form. Thank you!
