2016 IGEF Scholarship Golf Classic Raises More Than $67,000

The numbers are in. Iowa Grocery Industry Association members drove, putted and chipped their way through two Ankeny golf courses this spring, raising $67,784 for the Iowa Grocers Education Foundation.

Despite a soggy start, this worthwhile event went off without a hitch. Not only was it lots of fun for everyone involved, it has made possible scholarships for deserving college students with ties to the grocery industry.

The annual golf event, which was held Wednesday, May 11, 2016, took place at the Otter Creek and Briarwood golf courses.
 
A total of 232 golfers played a round of golf and contributed $2,930 to the IGEF by purchasing raffle tickets and taking part in putting contests.
