Colchester, VT – The Vermont Agency Foundation is excited to have raised $68,000 for local charities through their 8th Annual All Charity Golf Tournament at Burlington Country Club.
On Monday, August 19th nearly 100 golfers joined at the Burlington Country Club for The Vermont Agency Foundation’s 8th Annual All Charity Golf Tournament. This year’s event brought 23 teams together to golf for the charity of their choice. The top three teams, and one player selected at random, competed in a closest to the pin shootout with the top team winning $28,000 for Camp Ta-Kum-Ta. Second place received $11,500 for the Kelly Brush Foundation, and third place received $7,000 for Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation. Additional funds totaling nearly $4,000 were awarded throughout the day in the form of a longest and straightest drive competition, four closest to the pin holes, and a best decorated non-profit display. All teams who did not win one of the competitions received a $500 donation to their charity of choice on behalf of The Vermont Agency Foundation.
Dan Osman, Director of Development at Camp Ta-Kum-Ta shared, “Camp Ta-Kum-Ta’s year-round programming for children who have or have had cancer and their families would not be possible without the generosity of folks like The Vermont Agency Foundation.” Osman continued, “We are so thankful for The Vermont Agency Foundation and all that they do for Camp Ta-Kum-Ta and other non-profits in Vermont. The All Charity Golf Tournament is such a special day that benefits so many Vermonters.”
Melissa Cushing, Director of The Vermont Agency Foundation, explained “This tournament is unique in that it allows participants to play for the charity that they are passionate about and support personally.” She added, “It’s a great day of golf that brings awareness to so many wonderful charities and the good work they do in our community.”
In addition to support by The Vermont Agency Foundation, this year’s event sponsors were National Life Group Foundation, Acabay Inc., and SAC Incorporated, with media support from WCAX. Additional support was provided by SAGE Scholars, Inc., Perrywinkle’s, Dave Eaton Photography, Farrell Distributing, Community Bank N.A., The Essex Agency, Inc., and Co-Operative Insurance Companies.
The 2020 All Charity Golf Tournament is scheduled for Monday, August 17th at the Burlington Country Club.
