Thank you to everyone who made the Steve Yates Memorial Golf tournaments a success these past 5 years! When we started this journey we did not know how the events would go. It felt like we were always battling the unpredictable Iowa spring weather, but the resolve of our golfers amazed us every year. Although it was cold for this last tournament, we were lucky to have the sun shining bright and another year of good memories.
We had a great turnout with 24 teams of golfers and around 150 people for lunch. Your support and contributions helped us raise over $18,000 for the University of Iowa Foundation for melanoma research this year. Since, Steve’s death just over five years ago, we have donated around $95,000 to fight this disease. Steve would have been very humbled by the outpouring of support in his memory.
A special thanks to everyone on the planning committee, all the prize donors, and volunteers. We could not have done it without you.
All of the proceeds raised will benefit the University of Iowa Foundation for Melanoma Research.
