The Ruple Ranch and Land Golf Tournament: A Day to Remember
On Wednesday in 2023, golfers and philanthropists gathered at The Quarry Golf Course for a day of friendly competition and community support. The occasion? The first annual Ruple Ranch and Land Golf Tournament, a charity event to raise funds for AugustHeart.
The tournament followed a classic format, with teams of three players competing in a best-ball scramble. This format ensured that golfers of all skill levels could enjoy the game and contribute to the cause, as it allowed for a mix of expertise and camaraderie.
Supporting AugustHeart: A Worthy Cause
The true heart of the tournament was its commitment to AugustHeart, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing free heart screenings to young adults. Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death among young adults, and AugustHeart is committed to preventing tragic and unnecessary teen deaths caused by undiagnosed heart conditions. The tournament’s proceeds would directly benefit AugustHeart’s efforts to make heart screenings accessible to all young adults, potentially saving lives.
The Spirit of Giving
Throughout the tournament, the spirit of giving was palpable. Participants, sponsors, and volunteers all came together with a common goal: to support AugustHeart and make a difference in the lives of young adults.
