When the Westminster Community Center board saw a need for the Center’s operational funding, they decided that a golf outing would be an ideal way to raise funds while having fun.
On August 25, thirteen teams gathered to play golf and raise money for the continuing efforts of the Westminster Community Center
.“What a wonderful experience our first annual golf outing was,” Jeff Kundert, Westminster Community Center Director, noted. “We started with a goal of $3,000 and netted nearly $4,500.”
Several sponsors helped the Center reach their goal including First Presbyterian Church, Lee’s Chicken, KVK, Professional Design, Myers Furniture and Appliance, Montgomery’s Steakhouse, Wood Forest Bank, Jim Bell, Red’s Body Shop, Computer and Company, American Axle, WholeHeart Communications, Gail and Mike Stanley, J & M Krupp, John and Patti Lansinger, Scott Hayes, Magna Machine, Twin Lions, PCE Insurance, Gayle and Pam Shortridge-Bond, Duke Hamm, Rose Bowl, Block N Brew, Noon Optimist Club, Herb and Judy Bunch, Friends of Westminster, Fred Donnell, Jim Milliken, Mike Robles Sr, Tommy Oakes, Gary Drumm, and Todd Thalls.
The gathering was about more than raising funds. It also provided an opportunity to learn more about Westminster Community Center and the occasion for generations to connect with one another.
After the outing, Jim Bell stated “this is the first time I was able to golf with my son, grandson, and granddaughter all together.”
The first annual Westminster Golf Outing was spearheaded by Jerry Krupp and Tommy Oakes, Westminster board members.
“It was so amazing that the community came together for this fundraiser, and we hope we can continue in the future. The money raised will be used mainly for general operation costs,” noted Krupp.
