65 Roses a Smash Hit in 2016
There wasn’t a case of the Mondays to be found yesterday at Legends Golf Club in Prior Lake, Minn.
Despite a threatening forecast in the days leading up to the 19th Annual 65 Roses Golf Classic: A Tenacious Tournament™, 132 golfers enjoyed a sunny, warm 84-degree day with just a few clouds dotting the royal blue sky.
Thanks to the fine folks at Legends, the golf course was in great shape … which helped several foursomes break 60 in the scramble-style tournament. People stayed hydrated, shop was talked, deals were made, laughs were had, goodness abounded. There was even a rare albatross sighting on the ninth hole! It was a great day.
The event raised over $200,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) through the tremendous generosity of our safety industry. The involvement and commitment of our beloved community means so much to us – we are forever grateful!
Nearly 90 cents of every dollar raised goes to research – research that funds the groundbreaking drugs that have drastically improved the lives of those living with this disease. There is much to be proud of with these advancements – but there are many miles to go before we sleep, and we simply won’t rest until CF lives are no longer being shortened. It takes donations to make this a reality, and through the generosity shown at events like this, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been able to move mountains and get closer than ever before to CF standing for “Cure Found.”
