Celebrating a Wonderful 2014 Tournament!

The 7th Annual Tim Griffith Foundation Golf Tournament held on June 1, 2014 at the Los Lagos Golf Course in San Jose, CA was a huge success. The 50 golfers and guests had a win/win day as they enjoyed perfect weather, a beautiful golf course and knowing that the event benefited the work of the Foundation: to transform lives of those dealing with violence, addiction and loss. One of the 10 participating teams reported that playing in the tournament was “the most fun we’ve had on a Sunday morning in a long time!” The tournament raised over $3,000, which is a record for the event.

The 1st place winners were Nick Jackson, Jim Thompson, Kyle Garcia and Forest Roberts at 11 under par. The 2nd place team included Marty Redman, Bob Huff, Greg Martin, Bob Crabtree, and Bob Parker scoring 10 under par. And in 3rd place, Al Cunningham, Patrick Cunningham, and Josh Griffith came in at 5 under par.

The golfers enjoyed several exciting contest holes with spirited competition. The Closest to the Pin winner on hole #2 was Bob Crabtree with his drive landing 4 feet, 4 inches from the Pin. The Closest to the Pin winner at hole #7 was Kenny Jackson, whose drive landed a very close 1 foot, 11 inches from the hole. The Longest Drive winner was Bob Huff as his drive soared 296 yards. The Accuracy Drive contest was won by Ernie Wilson when his shot landed only 5 feet off the line. 

During the delicious barbeque lunch following the round, raffle tickets were sold and lucky winners were announced. Many thanks to our tournament volunteers who helped make the day’s events run seamlessly—we could not have had this event without your help. We would also like to thank the generous folks who donated items for our raffle as well as our tournament sponsors.

The Tim Griffith Foundation has accomplished great things in the past 10 years and having loyal supporters is vital to our success. A wonderful example of this continued support is that one of the foursomes playing in this year’s tournament has played together in all seven of the Foundation’s golf tournaments. We want to recognize the Wilson Family for being a consistent and generous part of our team. Thank you to “Team Wilson”: Ernie Wilson, Craig Wilson, Lance Wilson and Eric Wilson. We hope to see you and all our golfers again next year!
