Golf event successful

Alisa Dahl, Minot

The YWCA Minot Center of Hope recently held their annual “Swing Fore Shelter” golf tournament to raise funds for the YWCA Center of Hope shelter and permanent supportive housing. This year’s event was held in Velva at the Star City Golf Course and was a huge success thanks to the efforts of so many in our communities we raised nearly $6,000!

A great big thank you to our corporate sponsors KXMC, United Rentals, Bremer Bank, Minot Guaranty & Escrow, Real Builders, Verendrye Electric Cooperative, and Darlene Schnaible/Signal Realty. We would also like to thank all those businesses who donated door prizes and food, and the staff at the Star City Golf Course. Of course, a successful golf tournament wouldn’t be possible without all the wonderful women golfers who came from many communities to participate; we had 15 teams with golfers ranging in age from 18 to 74.

Finally, congratulations to Barb Matteson and Debbie Currie for putting together a wonderful event for women in the community to help other women in the community.
