Annual golf tournament raises $20,000 for Cram the Van
As our kick-off event to Cram the Van, we held our fourth annual Co-ops Care Charity Golf Tournament on Sept. 16, 2022, at the Golf Club at Southwind.
For the second year, we boasted a full tournament of players for our four-man scramble. Our annual event is a tremendous day filled with both food and fun — all FORE a great cause!
We’re excited to report that thanks to our golfers, sponsors, employees and volunteers, our fourth annual charity tournament raised over a whopping $20,000 in proceeds!
One hundred percent of these dollars will be added to our proceeds from this year’s Cram the Van in-person events and online donation campaign and distributed to the one dozen food banks that supply a safety net across our expansive southwest and central Kansas service territory.
A special shoutout goes to this year’s Gigawatt sponsors, including Sunflower Electric Power Corp. and Tyson Fresh Meats, which each contributed $2,500 to this year’s charity tournament.
These partners, dozens more sponsors, and our many golfers helped raise this year’s record-breaking donations. We know we could not have accomplished this feat without everyone involved, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us show how and why co-ops like ours care!
Stay tuned as we share more food and cash donation totals in the months ahead as we wrap up our ninth consecutive season of Cram the Van. Check our website or follow us on social media to stay up to date!
