Swing for Smiles tournament outdoes itself once again
Volunteer dentist Dr. Ryan Busk and Upper Valley MEND Executive Director Kaylin Bettinger receive a huge check from the Kahler Glen Women’s Golf League’s Anne Cole, Sandi Lund, Pam Nicklas, and Ann Strand. The League’s Swing for Smiles Charity Golf Tournament raised $10,632.50 for Upper Valley MEND’s Upper Valley Free Clinic Dental Program. The money brings a dental van to Leavenworth three times a year to offer free urgent and preventative dental care to low income adults without dental insurance.
The Kahler Glen Women’s Golf League is a group of 22 dedicated women who start planning the event in the spring. The tournament gets bigger and better every year. This year the tournament had 80 female golfers from across Washington State and raised even more money than last year. Thank you to all the businesses who donated items or sponsored a hole, especially Horan Estate Winery and Delta Dental of Washington, Kahler Glen Golf Course, Plain Cellars, The Squirrel Tree, Beaver Valley Electric, and The Wildflour Restaurant at Kahler Glen.
