The Fort Benton Lions Club held their first annual golf tournament fundraiser on July 20th at the Signal Point Golf Club in historic Fort Benton. We raised over $1,500 for local diabetes care. 36 golfers signed up and competed for cash prizes and donated awards. No one won the $10,000 prize for a hole in one, but it was a beautiful day and all participants were excited to come back next year.
The funds raised are already being used to pay for diabetes medications at local pharmacy for low-income diabetics, create low sugar/carb “food baskets” at local grocery, and offset costs for diabetes education through the local MSU extension office. This tournament was a successful fundraiser and will no doubt grow much larger next year!
