The Aurora Vistas 22nd Annual Mayor’s Cup Golf Tournament received a capacity crowd this year in support of mental health services for children and families.
The “Fore Our Kids” Mayor’s Cup Golf Challenge was held Monday, August 17th on a spectacular sunny Colorado day along the rolling slopes of Aurora’s Murphy Creek Golf Course.
Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan, Arvada Mayor Marc Williams, and Sheridan Mayor Dallas Hall participated in the 18-hole event with some 120 philanthropic golfers. The event began around sunrise with a 6:30 a.m. breakfast and a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start.
Event organizer Debbie Stafford — with help from Tawney Bass, Troy Bowman, Tim Huffman and Golf Chair Terry Todd — coordinated the presentation of several golfing awards including men’s and women’s longest drive, longest putt, and closest to the pin. The challenging 18-hole course kept the event competitive with certificates and prize drawings awarded after a luncheon of grilled chicken breasts and hamburgers.
Aurora Mental Health Center staffers Cindy Bohl and Heather Dolan were on hand to help coordinate planning and media coverage. Presenting Sponsor Citywide Banks were represented by Senior VP Stephan Ghadaifchian and VP Debra Neeley.
