The rain held off, and a fun-filled afternoon for golfers was held at Meadowlands Golf Club.

More than $40,000 was raised at this year’s event. That will go toward Bibles for Grads and Bibles for Haiti.

The tournament, now in its fifth year, has raised more than $125,000 for Bibles for the Nations as well as Bibles for Grads.

Many participants commented on how Sylvan Lake is a wonderful location for the event.
