On Monday October 14th the Club held the 26th Annual Golf Classic at Edgewood Tahoe. The event sold out weeks in advance and players were greeted with bright blue skies and perfect greens for a great day of golf.
Edgewood Tahoe provides the course, staff, food and beverage and equipment 100% for FREE every year, enabling the Club to maximize their proceeds. Other local businesses contribute by providing raffle or silent auction prizes, sponsorships, foursomes and on course entertainment. This year Lake Tahoe AleWorx, Tahoe Blue Vodka, Lagunitas and Belfor provided on course refreshment; while Launching for Charity, Phat Scooter and Jim Bagan Toyota provided great entertainment.
During the post round refreshments, comedian and guest, Joe Praino induced full on belly laughs, while our Junior Youth of the Year, Hannah Kelso, inspired players with what the Club has meant to her.
However, the fun isn’t over yet – the silent auction will be live until October 28th – and everyone is encouraged to visit www.bgclt.charitygrow.org and see the amazing prizes we have to offer. From vacations, to boat rides, Giants memorabilia to a private chef, there is something for everyone and every price range.
