Alumni Golf Tournament Raises Money, Unites Community
In Golf terms, the first Ranum/Westminster Alumni Golf Tournament was an “Ace.”
Co-Chair Bobby Landgraf Jr. used a baseball analogy calling the day a “Homerun.”
In spite of rainy, at times, cold weather about 120 golfers came out to play in the tournament at The Greg Mastriona Golf Courses at Hyland Hills. Dozens more attended the patio party after the tournament.
The day of golf was designed to bring the community together by taking advantage of the good natured rivalry between graduates from Westminster and Ranum High Schools.
There was some mild, good natured “trash talking” but in the end everyone agreed there is just one Westminster and the community needs to come together.
Money raised from the event is being split between the Hyland Hills Foundation and the District 50 Education Foundation, two groups that are focused on helping the children of Westminster.
Organizers are already looking to the future.
“This is only going to get bigger and better,” said Landgraf. “People have already reached out to me about next year.”
