2015 GOLF TOURNAMENT GIVES AWAY A NEW CAR!
Ryan Huszar of Windsor, CO signed up for a fun day of golf with the Kristi Visocky Memorial Golf Tournament. He never expected to drive away with a new car. On Sunday, July 26 Huszar made a hole-in-one on hole number 11 at Collindale Golf Course and won a new Buick Verano from Markley Motors. The hole was 176 yards and Huszar reported that he used his now favorite club a seven iron. This is the first time a car has been won at the tournament and long-time supporters Markely Motors couldn’t be more excited.
This was the 13th Annual Kristi Visocky Memorial Golf Tournament, held in memory of Kristi Visocky who was killed in a car accident in 2003. Determined to keep alive the spirit and compassion of a young woman who was a strong champion of the underdog and supporter of troubled youth, Kristi’s Fund was set up to provide scholarships and assistance to area young women, as well as support community organizations changing the world.
Since its inception in 2003 the Foundation has awarded $320,000 in scholarships to 90 area young women, $90,000 in support to area organizations including Project Self-Sufficiency, Crossroads Safehouse, SAVA, Child Safe, Mathews House, Lutheran Family Services, Salvation Army, Respite Care, Center for Family Outreach and Boys and Girls Club. In 2014 the Foundation built a House for Habitat for Humanity, raising over $100,000.
Proceeds from this year’s tournament will go to support Fort Collins SAVA - Sexual Assault Victim Advocacy Center.
THIS YEAR'S RECIPIENT
Organizers of the 13th Annual Kristi Visocky Memorial Golf Tournament announced that proceeds from this year's tournament will go to support for Fort Collins SAVA - Sexual Assault Victims Advocacy program. The Center’s mission is to provide crisis intervention, advocacy and counseling for all those affected by sexual violence and provide prevention programs through community outreach and education. According to Executive Directory Bob Visocky, "We want to help create a community without sexual violence. If you cannot imagine what that looks like, you are not alone. But together we can help make that vision a reality." Funds raised at the tournament will be used to support middle school programs that educate students about sexual violence and its consequences. SAVA envisions a culture change that results in the end of sexual violence.
