Participants, volunteers and sponsors of Columbia Gorge Community College Foundation’s 18th Annual Founder’s Cup golf tournament helped raise more than $19,000 for Columbia Gorge Community College Foundation’s student scholarship fund. This scholarship benefit was sponsored in part by Columbia State Bank.

Levi’s Custom Concrete/Beam Excavation and Gorge Networks teams earned first place trophies in the tournament at Indian Creek Golf Course on Saturday, Aug. 5. Levi’s Custom Concrete/Beam Excavation won the low gross category and Gorge Networks took home the low net prize. Google Home and Columbia State Bank (Team A) won second place awards, while teams Toole Carter Tissot and Coats LLP and YouTube won third place awards. 

Joe Stefani took home the closest-to-the-pin for the men and Mary Botsford for the women. Scott Haynes won the longest drive contest for men and Tina Blum for the women. Jeff Blum came closest to the pizza box to win a Papa Murphy’s pizza each month for one year. No one drove home the hole-in-one prize of a new car from C. H. Urness Motor Company.

Twenty-eight teams participated in this year’s tournament. In addition, the college foundation raised more than $4,000 through a general raffle that included 12 fabulous prizes contributed by community members and local businesses, as well as a wine raffle that included six cases of local, exceptional wine prizes.
