Sober Corps’ Inaugural “12 Holes for 12 Steps” a Great Success

On Thursday, September 22, Sober Corps held the first ever 12-hole golf tournament. The event, deemed “12 Holes for 12 Steps,” succeeded in raising both funds and awareness for Sober Corps’ program. The event raised over $6,000.  The money goes directly to Sober Corps’ mission of providing mentorship and life skills training to men and women in their first year of recovery. The tournament began at 2:00 p.m. with a shotgun start. By 5:30 p.m. the golfers assembled in the clubhouse for a dinner and program. The program included special guest speaker, Julio Becquer, one of the original Minnesota Twins. The winning team was also announced: Avantstar!

The tournament would not have been possible without the generosity of our sponsors.
