Through this fundraiser, the United Way was able to raise more than $9,300 to put back into supporting the needs of the community.
Sponsors of the event were Aagard, Douglas Machine, Geneva Capital, Massman Automation and Additional Sponsors: Glenwood State Bank, American Solutions for Business and Minnewaska Abstract. These event sponsors are important because their support allows the United Way to offset the expenses of the tournament and capture the most dollars, according to United Way leaders.
