Annual Twin County United Way Golf Invitational Raises $10,000

Proceeds benefit local kindergarten readiness efforts

LEWISTON – Golfers enjoyed a beautiful Lewis-Clark Valley day on the course while supporting a great cause at the 12th Annual Twin County United Way Golf Invitational.  Proceeds raised today benefit the United Way’s kindergarten readiness efforts.

Bryden Canyon Golf Course was host to 26 teams of golfers who participated in the four-person scramble event which kicked off with a shotgun start at noon on Friday, June 15.  The tournament was open to all levels of play from once-a-year golfers to a 58, which is what the top two teams scored to tie for first.  After a chip-off between Brian King and Brandon Koehler, the winning foursome included Koehler, Nick Hall, Zach Holley and Billy Silvestri.

Other winning golfers for the day included closest to the pin winners Pam Cuddy (Hole 4), Randy Sandvick (15), Nick Hall (8), Kye Hays (4), Brian King (13); men’s longest drive winner Billy Silvestri; women’s longest drive winner Courtney Schwagler; and longest putt, Brenda McIntosh.  Colby Witters was the drawing winner of a Camp Chef cooler donated by Vista Outdoors. Stonebraker McQuary Insurance offered up a hole-in-one prize, but no one walked away with the five days, 4 nights Las Vegas vacation package.

“This is our biggest fundraiser for our Kindergarten Boot Camps,” said Tim Barker, chair for this year’s event. Twin County United Way’s Kindergarten Boot Camp is a summertime program which helps prepare children for kindergarten in the fall. Research shows that children who start school behind tend to stay behind. The Kindergarten Boot Camp provides four- and five-year-old children with an inside look of what school will be like and teaches essential skills needed to be ready to enter kindergarten in the fall.

“We appreciate the support from the community” continued Barker, “from all the volunteers who started at 8 a.m. to the amazing after-tournament dinner hosted by Red Lion Hotel, it’s a team effort that makes the tournament a successful fundraiser and makes golfers want to come back each year.”  Course sponsor was P1FCU and station sponsors included Advanced Benefits, St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, Inland Cellular and Washington Trust Bank.  Pepsi was the beverage sponsor and more than 21 other local businesses were hole sponsors.

Next year’s tournament is scheduled for the Friday before Father’s Day, June 14, 2019.  To sponsor or play in next year’s tournament, contact the Twin County United Way office at (208) 743-6594.  To support the United Way’s kindergarten readiness efforts, text KIDS to 40403.

400 at the Ready for Twin County United Way’s Annual Day of Caring

A record number have signed up for volunteer service on May 12

LEWIS-CLARK VALLEY –The Twin County United Way’s 22nd Annual Day of Caring is taking place today. And, it is bigger than ever.  More than 400 volunteers will gather at the Community Center in Lewiston at 8 a.m. and then disperse across the community for a half-day of volunteer service.

The community-wide event, presented by Regence BlueShield of Idaho, shows what can be accomplished in just a short time when so many are working together. “It is a few hours of service for each participant,” said Day of Caring Chair, Kim Casey, “but it equates to 1,200 hours of service – all before noon.” Casey continued, “today is a demonstration of the power of living united and is intended to encourage volunteerism throughout the year.”

Regence president, Scott Kreiling, who is serving with more than 90 volunteers from Regence, shared, “this is one of our favorite events each year.  Our employees want to give back where they live and work and this gives us the opportunity to see different ways we can help our local nonprofits and the entire community.” More than 35 projects, including a couple skilled construction projects, will be completed today.  Volunteers will be participating in a wide range of tasks including designing posters, painting bowls, painting walls, installing handrails and adding other safety modifications, yard work, organizing, cleaning, power washing buildings, repacking food, carpentry and more.

New this year, Day of Caring volunteers – and others from the community – can also donate blood at the Inland Northwest Blood Center at 1213 21st Street in Lewiston.

Support from Regence and P1FCU, along with in-kind donations from ArtBeat, Fazzari’s and IdaVend Broadcasting, underwrite the costs of the event.
