The Yosemite Lakes 2019 volunteer fundraising committee had its annual Gala and Golf Tournament on May 3rd and 4th. Proceeds from the two events benefited our local Yosemite Lakes Fire Station #10.
The Gala was attended by more than 125 people, who enjoyed appetizers provided by the Blue Heron Restaurant. As usual Chef Pol, Kassie and the entire staff did a fantastic job taking care of the food and service. Albert from Fig Productions kept the evening lively and was our Auctioneer Extraordinaire.
We had close to 70 companies and individuals who donated items and services for our door prizes, raffles and silent and live auctions. The committee thanks the donors and bidders for their contributions. A special thank you goes out to Steve and Becky Brannon for their very generous donation.
We are also very appreciative of the additional support of Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino, Eddie Reed of Superior Pool Care (The live auction of the life-sized carved bear was one of the evening’s highlights) and Kamps Propane.
The golf tournament was held on Saturday May 4th. We had 68 players that participated in the event. For the 1st time, we had all 18 tees (White and Blues) sponsored by companies and individual golfers.
These events could not happen without people who dedicate hours of organizing, planning and setup. The committee thanks Neil and Belinda Ordway, Roger Hoff, Noel and Mary Reimers, Mel Shapiro, Steve Sunseri and Bill Eigenman. We would also like to recognize Maria Ciccarelli and Terri Fulcher for handling all the duties of checking everyone in the night of the Gala.
The Yosemite Lakes Golf Association and Station 10 thank everyone who attended and appreciate your ongoing support.
