1st Annual Disc Golf Tournament Soars To Success
The first annual Serenity Lane Soaring for Sobriety disc golf tournament was a blast!
We had so much fun! 37 professional and amateur disc golfers turned out plus a small army of volunteers. Pictures coming but meantime: some stores from the day and shout outs to those who made it happen.
One couple actually flew down from Seattle just to play in the tournament. Another player, a person who went through Serenity Lane’s Intensive Outpatient program in Portland won 1st place in his division. And when he received his trophy, he began weeping with tears of joy; stating he has been playing disc golf for over ten years and never won a game. He has now been sober for 14 months and he won his first trophy.
The pros walked away with some really nice cash prizes. and one of the amateurs won four tickets to this year’s Bi-Mart Country Music Festival. Another lucky raffle winner (a volunteer) took away a brand new kayak! There were many other great prizes, thanks to our sponsors.
A very big thank you to our title sponsor, Willamette Family Treatment Services. We thank you for your support, your time and for helping make this event truly special. From the great remarks from executive director Susie Dey to the 10 volunteers who came out the day of the event to help ensure everything ran smoothly.
And to our additional sponsors: Sponsors, Inc., Chambers Construction, Bi-Mart and Play it Again Sports: thank you. Your support enabled us to bring together alumni, disc golf pros, friends and family on a beautiful, sunny day to celebrate recovery, eat tasty food and go home with some fabulous prizes!
