golf2014

With the help of 26 teams, your cooperative was able to raise more than $9,500 for the United Way of the Bemidji Area via the 10th Annual Beltrami Electric Touchstone Energy® Open. More than 130 golfers finished their rounds just before a heavy rain shower. The event was held on Aug. 22 and again hosted by Castle Highlands Golf Course just northeast of Bemidji.

“For the 10th straight year, we are so thankful for the support that our members and friends provide us in order to raise funds for the United Way,” said Cammie Vogel, Beltrami Electric’s United Way campaign coordinator.

Approximately 100 local and regional businesses sponsor this tournament each year, making it Beltrami Electric’s largest single fundraiser for this wonderful charitable organization that serves 32 agencies in the greater Bemidji area. Beltrami Electric Cooperative thanks these businesses, the golfers and tournament volunteers on behalf of the United Way. We appreciate your commitment and support! The 11th annual event is scheduled for Aug. 21, 2015.
