Letter | Golfing to fight hunger

The President’s Cup Golf Tournament, held June 30 at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge, was another enormous success. On behalf of Snoqualmie Valley Rotary, I want to express our appreciation to sponsors and participants who propelled us to raise $54,000 for Rotary First Harvest, the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank and other local organizations. Our primary sponsor, Snoqualmie Casino, was generous in their support and played a critical role in making the day’s festivities a huge hit.

Rotary has existed in the 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, which build community and support those who have need.

Because of your involvement, proceeds from the President’s Cup will generate more than 50,000 pounds of fresh food to benefit children and families who rely on the 450 hunger-relief organizations across Washington.

This year’s Cup champions hailed from our very own Mount Si High School, Alex Nelson, Jimmy Jacobson, Nick McAlister and Nate Fisher comprised the team that won it all and will have their name engraved on the trophy. Congratulations, guys!

The 2015 President’s Cup will be held on June 29, at the TPC. I hope that you will join us in the fight against hunger again next year. Again, to our sponsors and participants, thank you for your support.

Dan Marcinko
