Last month, we put on our golf shoes, loaded our pockets with golf balls, tees and ball markers, and hit the course with our clients at Ardent Mills for their fourth annual charity golf tournament. We were honored to take part in their record-breaking event, which raised $200,000 for the Food Bank of the Rockies, a nonprofit organization that distributed nearly 49 million meals through direct service programs and partner agencies last year.
With the money raised at this year’s event, the Food Bank of the Rockies will be able to provide 800,000 meals for those in need. This was heartwarming to hear, since one out of every 10 people doesn’t know where their next meal is going to come from. While our team didn’t win, this year’s event, which included 96 companies and 250 participants, was a huge success and set the bar high for next year’s golf tournament (scheduled to take place on June 20, 2019).
