“We continue to be excited by the turnout of this annual event,” said Carol Chapman, president of The Foundation Assisting Seniors. “We had 262 golfers of all ages and abilities participate in the tournament, and their support of Vegas valley seniors is vital to our organization. We are thrilled to be able to serve even more seniors in the coming year.”
The event included a four-person scramble format. In addition to 18 holes of golf, participating players received beverages and enjoyed various contests and raffles throughout the day. The fun-filled day of philanthropy concluded with an awards luncheon.
