On Saturday, August 22nd, Active Children Portland hosted our first annual Active Children Portland FootGolf Shootout Sponsored by adidas. 113 players participated in the tournament at Glendoveer Golf Course. The Shootout was a huge success. Thank you for helping us raise $11,000! We’re already looking forward to next year’s event!
“It was so much fun! Everyone was having a great time and thanks to our sponsors, we had great food and drinks to enjoy as we played. I was really encouraged by the huge turnout,” said Active Children Portland Executive Director Ben Dudley.
The FootGolf Shootout was a tournament with prizes for lowest over all score, closest to the pin and longest drive. We also had a hole in one competition sponsored by Mercedes Benz of Wilsonville. We had 4 players win a Mercedes for the weekend after scoring a hole in one!
“I was shocked when I learned that 4 people made hole in ones! Crazy! Even more crazy was 3 people made a hole in one on the closest to the pin contest. We held a shootout for the prize. It was an epic day!”
Active Children Portland would like to thank our title sponsor adidas for their continued support, and for providing soccer balls, socks, and employee store passes to our participants. Additionally, thank you to Base Camp Brewing Co. for providing beer, and Chipotle for providing lunch. Finally, thank you to the Northrup Corporation, Providence, Mercedes Benz of Wilsonville, Safeco, and Northwest Bank for their support. We truly appreciate our sponsor’s support.
“Also, a huge thank you to Austin Early and Evan Lundgren for putting the tournament together! Without their help, this event would not have happened.”
