Hey Campers + Staff,
We had a phenomenal fundraiser on Friday, the 1st Annual BTC Golf Tournament! On a bright and sunny day, 93 golfers competed in teams, and brought the Tuolumne Spirit to the greens and fairways of Tilden Park. About 200 supporters attended the dinner and live auction on Friday evening, including the Honorable City Council Members Darryl Moore, Linda Maio, and Laurie Capitelli, current and past staff members, and a lot of good old Camp friends.
Jim Whitty, camper and volunteer extraordinaire, and our very own Scott Gelfand, worked the mic during the Live Auction. We auctioned off 10 items, including a stay at a vacation house in Mexico, generously donated by the Kletz Family. Campers and Staff also took home 40 fantastic raffle items, which were generously donated by campers and local businesses. Many local businesses also sponsored the 18 holes, and deserve credit and your business! Please support the businesses that support us! They are listed below.
This event was a big success, both in terms of keeping the Tuolumne Spirit alive and well, and also as a fundraiser. We owe a ton of thanks to our super-camper-volunteers, Jim and Katie Whitty, for working tirelessly and with their network of friends and FOBTC to organize and run the event. (“Round the Hall you must go, you must go, you must go!”) Many thanks to the former and current staff who worked out on the course, and to ous super volunteers Jim, Katie, Michael, Trish, and Mike for setting up, running the registration table, and keeping everything running smoothly.
It will take a real team effort for us to help get Camp rebuilt. Many thanks to Jim and Katie for devoting so much time, energy, and resources to make our first Golf Tournament a huge success!
