Letters | Kudos for a Rotary success

The President’s Cup Golf Tournament held at the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge on Monday, June 3, was an enormous success. On behalf Snoqualmie Valley Rotary, I want convey my gratitude to sponsors and participants who propelled us to net $30,000 for Rotary First Harvest, the Mount Si Food Bank and other local  organizations.

The TPC Snoqualmie Ridge treated us to a first-class event at their facility, providing us with a mouthwatering barbecue lunch.

Rotary has existed in the Snoqualmie Valley for nearly 35 years to advance the ideal of service above self. This community has continually demonstrated its faith in our organization by supporting events like the President’s Cup and Challenge Race, that build community and provide for those in need.

This year, the decision was made to expand our golf tournament with a short window of time for planning and execution. I have faith in our Rotarians, and they rose to the challenge, creating the foundation for this event to grow well into the future.

During our event, we recognized Matt Campbell and his team at the Mount Si Golf Course with Snoqualmie Valley Rotary’s inaugural “Service Above Self” designation for their generosity in hosting the event over the past 19 years. His team of Ben Campbell, Chris Eads, and Steve Cutbert also went on to win the event, and their names will be engraved on the Presidents Cup Trophy which will be on display, rotating throughout the community. There was also a hole-in-one on 14, which has never been done in the history of the course.

Finally, I want to offer special thanks to our lunch sponsor, the Snoqualmie Casino, and beverage sponsor, Nintendo, for their financial commitment to this event. The future for the President’s Cup is very bright indeed, as we continue our work to eradicate hunger in our community.

Service above self,

Brad Toft

President, Snoqualmie Valley Rotary
