The Mount Baker Chapter of the American Red Cross raised more than $45,000 in support of local disaster relief during its 19th annual Golf Tournament and sixth annual Golf Ball Drop, held on June 28 at Shuksan Golf Club in Bellingham.
The events combined are the second-largest annual fundraiser for the Mount Baker Chapter.
“Everything we do is made possible by the generosity of individuals and businesses in our community,” Stacy Rice said, the chapter’s executive director, said in a press release. “Thank you to everyone who helped make this event such a great success.”
Sponsors included the Phillips 66 Ferndale Refinery and Ferndale Ready Mix and Gravel. Prizes were donated by Silver Reef Casino and Alaska Airlines.
