Golfers for Scholars
Golfing for our Youth Since 1998
It all began back in 1998, when, after
several years of playing just for fun,
the Redmond Realtors had a few
dollars left over from their raffles
and thus, the scholarship fund was
Now, 24 years later, Redmond
Real Estate Community Foundation
(RREFC) has been able to award scholarships to nearly 220 students totaling over $168,000! Each year, as the tournament grows, we are able to impact the lives of more students, giving them an opportunity that they may otherwise never have had.
In 2020, the Golfers for Scholars fundraiser tournament had planned to include a formal dinner event during the evening following the tournament featuring both live and silent auctions, and conclude with music and dancing. Unfortunately, the pandemic did not allow for us to continue with the tournament and we were forced to postpone to 2021.
Our 2021 graduates were not left without a contribution from the Redmond Real Estate community, however. We pulled together our resources and gave what we could to the graduating classes to allow for them to have a party. They were absolutely thrilled to receive this and we were just as thrilled to give these students a little bit of joy at the end of their school year. In August 2021 we were able to hold the tournament and raise $18,000 in scholarships for the 2022 graduates.
We are looking forward to the 2022 Golfers for Scholars tournament on June 24, 2022 at Juniper Golf Course! We hope you'll join us and help provide our 2023 graduates with our biggest scholarships yet!
