2011 Recap


It was a beautiful day for the 20th Annual Golf Tournament held on June 20th. 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. H.J. Development, Inc. sponsored the boxed lunches and Fredrikson & Byron, P.A. sponsored the lunch beverages. 56 companies sponsored holes, 36 of which hosted raffle drawings or handed out beverages, food or goodie bags to passing golfers. All Elements, Inc. and Reliable Property Services sponsored our Par-Tee Carts that allowed golfers to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win carts for their foursome stocked with all kinds of prizes. And new this year, Lawn Ranger hosted a wine pull, which sold corks for $10 and each purchaser was guaranteed a bottle of wine valued between $10 - $60.

Ryan Burke of Kraus-Anderson Companies and Matthew Rauenhorst, 2011 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 over $27,000 for The Caring Tree! With The Caring Tree’s partnerships assisting to maximize financial donations, these proceeds can help to send over 1,350 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!

Mark your calendars for the 21st Annual MSCA Golf Tournament - June 18, 2012!
