George Rouches golf tourney raises $6,225

Golf foursomes from around the state made their way to Indian Creek Golf Course on Sunday for the inaugural George Rouches Memorial Golf Tournament.

More than 130 people turned out on a sunny Sunday afternoon to help raise money for the Hood River Library Foundation.

A total of $6,225 was raised through registrations and various fundraising efforts, and tournament organizers were very pleased with the results.

“It was a spectacular event,” said marketing director David Sword. “We raised a lot of money for the foundation, and everything went very smooth.”

Two teams tied for first place in the four-person scramble format, but Todd Tegman sank a 35-foot playoff putt to put his team “Double X” over the top.

Willis Bullard, Andy Fischer and Lori Duffy also participated on the winning team, which scored a 59.

Dylan Campy, Tyson Jacobs, Tony Ghiz and John Rouches of the “Pumpkin Ridge” team finished second, also with a 59, while “Family Bluestein” — Harold, Sue, Kate and David — took third with a score of 60.

Most of the money from the tournament ($2,680) came from an all-day auction, while significant contributions from sponsors ($1,700), donations ($1,000) and “mulligans” ($845) also helped the cause.
