Golf Classic a winner for REF

The Riverview Educational Foundation (REF) held their 4th Annual Golf Classic on Sept. 22.
   Once again, Mother Nature cooperated with a spectacular fall day for the tournament at Tall Chief Golf Course in Fall City. Golfers of all abilities had fun by supporting the educational opportunities that REF offers.
   The shotgun start at noon sent all 80 of the golfers on their quest for the best score or for a chance to win a new car.
   The winner for best score was the team of Jennifer and Chad Swanson and Jill and Craig Looper. Other winners included Stuart Lisk and Cheryl Wartinger for longest drives, Pete Woelz for longest putt and Robin Woelz for closest to pin. Eagle Rock was awarded the best school participation trophy.
   Many other awards and prizes were presented during the buffet following the tournament.
   Thanks to the golfers, the hole sponsors and the local area businesses who donated wonderful prizes, REF raised over $4,000 to be used for grants for the year 2003. The REF Golf Classic is one of the major sources of funds for the Riverview Educational Foundation.
   REF is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that works to generate private and public support to enrich the quality of public education in the Riverview School District. REF supports projects that provide an opportunity to stimulate learning and enhance or expand the school. This year 14 grants (worth a total of $8,000) have been awarded to the teachers and students.
