Midlands Community Foundation (midlandscommunity.org) raised $60,000 at its 2022 golf tournament at Oak Hills Country Club on May 23. The tournament was sold out with 144 golfers participating.

Through the generous contributions of tournament sponsors and participants, including Double Eagle Sponsor Bluestem Capital Partners, proceeds will benefit Banisters Leadership Academy, Merrymakers, and animal shelters and humane societies in Sarpy and Cass counties. These include the Plattsmouth Animal Shelter, Happy Paws Rescue, Town & Country Humane Society, Nebraska Border Collie Rescue, Nebraska Wildlife Rehab, and Raptor Conservation Alliance.

During the tournament, Seth Porter with the TeamMates- Gretna Chapter team made a hole-in-one on hole four, the first hole-in-one in MCF’s 41-year tournament history.

“We are grateful to have had such wonderful supporters of our golf tournament and are honored to be able to support multiple nonprofit organizations that provide programs and services in Sarpy and Cass counties,” said Tonee Gay, executive director.
