It was the perfect morning on the golf course for this year’s Mayor’s Cup Golf Tournament which benefits the Aurora Vistas Foundation. The annual event was held at Murphy Creek Golf Course in Aurora on September 8, 2014. Nearly 100 golfers, including Aurora Mayor Steve Hogan and Arvada Mayor Marc Williams, participated in the tournament. The event began bright and early with a 6:30 breakfast and a 7:30 shotgun start. Several prize holes including, Men’s and women’s longest drive, longest putt and closest to the pin added to the day’s excitement.

Following the round, golfers enjoyed a lunch of grilled chicken and hamburgers and presentation and awards ceremony. Board President Sandy Sweeney welcomed the crowd and Dr. Randy Stith explained the importance of the work of Aurora Vistas. Mayor Steve Hogan then addressed the audience and announced that in future years, any metro Mayor who participates in the event will qualify for their local mental health center to apply for grant funding for their children’s special programs. The event concluded with fantastic door prizes and drawings for some great golf-themed giveaways.

 Since 1987 , Aurora Vistas Foundation has been raising awareness and funds to support Aurora Mental Health Center’s programs for children and their families.
