SAVE THE DATE FOR NEXT YEAR>>>AUGUST 27, 2017

The 17th Annual Golf Classic fundraiser was last Sunday at Sierra Star. It was really fun and we filled the course with 146 golfers…2 over the max!!We partnered with Mammoth Lakes Foundation for the second year in a row, with all revenues, expenses and proceeds shared equally between MLF and DSES. The goal of this fundraiser is to support higher education, cultural arts and the National Wounded Warrior Center.

The photos from the event have been uploaded to their web. See them at www.facebook.com/mammothlakesfoundation. Download hi-res photos at http://bit.ly/2c9Lql9. Jeff Smith did a bang-up job with the camera…I’ve already requested him for next year!! Feel free to share this with your networks.
