The 9th annual Gary Thompson Agency Hook & Ladder Golf Tournament was held on Thursday, August 25th at the Red Cloud Golf Course near Red Cloud, NE. In order to field a team in the 4-person scramble, at least one team member must be on their local fire department or local EMS department.
The Gary Thompson Agency partners with Farmers Mutual of Nebraska, EMC Insurance Companies and Nationwide as corporate sponsors of this charity golf outing. Prize money is collected from these corporate sponsors and team entry fees as well as hole sponsorships from several other companies to allow 100% of the proceeds (minus golf course expenses) to be paid back to the participating teams. This year 28 teams participated in the golf tournament.
We appreciate all the hard work and dedication that our local, volunteer first responders allocate to those in need. This tournament allows us to give them a small portion of the recognition they deserve.
We send a special thank you to all that were in attendance and to all the GTA staff that helps to organize and run this tournament. We look forward to hosting this event again in 2017!
