Dear Friends,

    We, at United Way of Crookston’s Annual Giving/Golf Committee, are planning our 3rd Annual Golf Event, led by Hugo’s Family Marketplace #4 in Crookston. The Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday, June 21st with registration at 8:00 a.m. and a shotgun start at 9 a.m.

    This exciting event has become a community favorite. Having Hugo’s as the leader with their great sponsors and prizes makes this golf tournament quite a gem! New this year is a “Wheel Barrel of Fun” filled with beer, wine and other treats. You won’t want to miss this fun-draiser!

    Once again, the proceeds will go toward our yearly campaign which is open until of the end of August 2018. We never stop working our campaign because there are so many community needs. United Way of Crookston has three focus areas: Health, Education, and Income. Currently, we are serving 19 agencies’ programs and projects.             
    According to community leaders and local residents, the top three issues in the Crookston area are drugs, mental health issues, and hunger. So as our culture and needs change, so will our agencies. We keep your dollars local and continue to work with each agency to assure the money granted to them is used for the intended purpose.

    United Way of Crookston also includes a Student United Way chapter from UMC. It’s a beautiful engagement with UMC and our local schools and mentorships. The SUW has three focus areas as well: Localizing Hunger & Poverty, Breaking Bullying -Leading the Change, and Kick Start Reading & Mentoring.

    Please join us for a day of Living United fun! Act fast as we are only taking the first 20 teams of four. If you are unable to golf perhaps you would consider being a sponsor? If so, your gift of $100 or more qualifies your name or business as a hole sponsor!

    If you have questions, please call Lori Wagner at 218-280-2933 or Nick Nelson at Hugo’s 218-281-3690. All Registration forms and checks should be sent to Hugo’s in Crookston - Attention: Nick Nelson.
