First Alaska USA Foundation Fairway Friends Golf Tournament

Raising $130,000 for Local Nonprofits

ANCHORAGE, Alaska— Meeting friends on the fairway and supporting Armed Services YMCA Alaska (ASYMCA) and Covenant House Alaska was the goal of 140 golfers as they participated in the first Alaska USA Foundation Fairway Friends Golf Tournament July 8 at the Anchorage Golf Course. The tournament brought business partners, credit union leaders and the community together to support these organizations.

“The Alaska USA Foundation is committed to supporting needs-based organizations like ASYMCA and Covenant House Alaska. We are so thankful that our business partners and community were eager to sponsor the first Foundation golf tournament and support these amazing organizations and the critical work they are doing,” said Geoff Lundfelt, President of the Alaska USA Foundation.

This sold-out event raised $130,000 with $65,000 going to ASYMCA’s mission of enhancing the lives of military members and their families in spirit, mind and body through programs relevant to the unique challenges of military life and $65,000 to support Covenant House’s mission of providing compassionate, sustainable services and shelter to homeless or at-risk youth in Alaska.

The Alaska USA Foundation Fairway Friends Golf Tournament will be an annual Foundation event, providing the opportunity for Foundation nonprofit partners to benefit from this fun fundraiser.
