2010 Recap

It was a beautiful day for the 19th Annual Golf Tournament held on June 21st. This year was a great turnout for golfing and networking with other MSCA members and their clients to raise funds for a great cause. In addition, we had an additional 60 people come join us for dinner and the silent auction. The Caring Tree, founded by MSCA in 1993, promotes educational success for Minnesota’s K-12 students in-need by ensuring that they have the appropriate school supplies.

The Golf Committee puts a lot of time and effort into preparations for the event and auction items. In addition, many volunteers offered their time to help make the event a success. The Lawn Ranger, Inc. sponsored the boxed lunches and Fredrikson & Byron, P.A. sponsored the lunch beverages. 56 companies sponsored holes, 35 of which hosted raffle drawings or handed out beverages, food or goodie bags to passing golfers. H.J. Development, Inc. sponsored our Par-Tee Carts that allowed golfers to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win carts for their foursome stocked with beverages, ipods, cigars, etc. 

Zach Stensland of Welsh Companies, Mike Sims of Mid-America Real Estate – Minnesota, LLC and Margaret Jordan, 2010 Caring Tree President, thanked the crowd for their ongoing support for The Caring Tree.

All together, the putting contest, silent auction, silent auction company/people matches, online auction and hole sponsor raffles raised a total of $25,849 for The Caring Tree! With The Caring Tree’s partnerships assisting to maximize financial donations, these proceeds can help to send over 1,360 Minnesota children back-to-school with new school supplies!

Everyone who took part in this event should be proud to know that their generosity benefited a worthy cause. We all look forward to next year’s event being even more successful.

A special thank you goes out to all the committee members and volunteers who gave their time and expertise in making this great event possible. A job well done!
