The CMMA Golf Social once again raised significant funds in support of scholarships and youth manufacturing programs. Held at Wapicada Golf Club in St. Cloud on June 11, the seventh annual event netted $10,900 in profits. As the association’s only fundraiser each year, proceeds are earmarked to support the CMMA Foundation. The Foundation distributes scholarships and grants that support youth manufacturing programs in the region.
Since its inception in 2008, CMMA has provided over $112,000 in support of workforce development and career awareness!
The weather cooperated nicely when a threat of rain throughout the afternoon didn’t amount to anything. Nearly 100 golfers and volunteers enjoyed an afternoon of networking in the great outdoors. Adding to the fun were sponsor events on nearly every hole, including an “egg walk and marinated gummy bears” that netted a “CMMA Best Sponsor Award” for Gaslight Creative.
First place prize money was awarded to a team of golfers from Advantage One Insurance: Brian Jarl, Dan Fielder, Kim Nygaard, and Justin Berg.
Proximity prizes were awarded to:
Longest Drive Women.......Kim Nygaard, Advantage One Insurance
Longest Drive Men............Tommy Traeger, BerganKDV
Longest Putt......................Dave Krebsbach, St. Cloud Window
Closest to the Pin..............Brian Jarl, Advantage One Insurance
Congratulations to one and all!
