Golf Fore Grants 2022
Congratulations to our 2022 Golf Fore Grants Winners!
On June 6, 2022, over 200 participants, volunteers, and sponsors gathered for a day of golf, games, and fun at Champions Run Golf Course for our 23rd annual Golf Fore Grants Tournament. This year’s event was our most successful Golf Fore Grants fundraiser yet, raising over $55K for Elkhorn Public Schools’ classrooms!
“As we celebrate Golf Fore Grants’ 23rd year, we are grateful and humbled by the continued sponsorships, golf participants, course volunteers, and overall community collaboration of this successful annual event.” said Stacey Falk, EPSF Executive Director.
This year’s Golf Fore Grants event featured a four-person 18-hole afternoon scramble which began with a noon shotgun start. Members of Elkhorn South High School Cheer, Elkhorn North Band, Elkhorn Kids Campus Employees, and Foundation Friends teamed up to assist with golf games all along the course which included opportunities to win a variety of prizes including a lease on a 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio. For the first time in EPSF Golf Fore Grants history, a tournament golfer shot a hole-in-one and won the lease on the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio! This is also the only “win a car” hole-in-one that has been recorded at Champions Run!
The tournament team champions were DA Davidson’s Paul Grieger, Al Herink, Cody Wickham, and Jeff Roh with a winning score of 57. Jukes Ale Works’ foursome were the winners of this year’s putting green contest and the best Golf Poker hand went to Wyatt Behlen.
