The 11th Annual Chipping in for Charity Golf Tournament held on October 9th at Gustin Golf Course was a resounding success. It is estimated that the tournament raised approximately $16,000.00 for Mid-Missouri Legal Services’ Veterans Law Project, which provides pro bono legal services for low income veterans in our community. Through the 2016 tournament, $95,091.77 has been raised for charity.
Congratulations to the Bush & Patchett, LLC team which successfully defended their 2016 victory by again winning Championship Flight this year by shooting a scorching nineteen under par score of 51. Other winners were: A Flight – Atwill & Montgomery, LLC team; B Flight – Allen & Nelson, P.C. team; C Flight – Spencer Bartlett, Richard Hicks, Garrett Taylor, and Nick Komoroski team; D Flight – McCausland, Barrett & Bartalos, P.C. team; and, E Flight – Veterans United Home Loans team. Congratulations are also in order for the Edward Kolkebeck and friends for winning the consolation prize for last place/highest score (but probably most fun had) in the tournament which is among the more coveted prizes given away at the tournament.
