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.
