Fundraising Over Summer Break

Note: This article was updated July 24. Summer for many of us means sipping a cool beverage after a long bike ride, rafting or SUPping down the river, hiking with our dogs, staying away from wildfires, and somehow keeping our kids’ brains turning to mush. For a dedicated few, it means braving the challenge of the Fourth Annual Golf FORE Education tournament at Keystone Ranch Golf Resort.

EyeTech Optometry’s Team A was Gary Sorensen, Matt Elston, Sam Devlin. They used cunning and skill to outplay and outmaneuver their opponents in order to award their prize, a $1,000 check, to the Summit High School Golf Program. The other teams put up a good effort and took their defeat in grace. It was  a great time for a great cause. The other teams included FirstBank, Breckenridge Grand Vacations Gives, Vail Epic Promise, Omni Real Estate-Anne Marie Ohly, EyeTech Optometry’s Team B, and Greco’s Pastaria. All the participants truly made the event a memorable day. We thank these teams for their participation, sportsmanship, good humor, and dedication to our schools.
