This last saturday (Sept. 29) we had our 2nd Annual Appelquist Foundation Golf tournament at Deer Lake Golf Course. I don't think any of us would have imagined when we started the Foundation almost 3 years ago that our 2nd tournament would be a memorial tournament. While it was a huge success it was bittersweet to say the least to not have Jim there to see how much support and love was shown. We almost doubled our registration with 18 Teams of 4, had a huge increase in monetary & raffle donations and the weather couldn't have been more perfect!
We will continue to honor & remember Jim with our 3rd Annual Tournament in the fall of 2013 and are already talking about ways to make it bigger and better. If you are or know a golfer please pass on our website & facebook page and sign up to play next year. We are already super excited.
