Bud Powers Memorial Golf Tourney & 5K/1-Mile Run/Walk

I know many of you are aware that my Dad (Bud Powers) passed away on April 4th, 2016. He was a very special person to many, many people. My Dad loved golf & played 2-3 times per week. Dad always had a soft spot for children & coached youth baseball for a number of years. My Family & I will be having the 3rd Annual Bud Powers Memorial Golf Tournament to honor Dad's life. It is scheduled for Saturday, August 11th at Schifferdecker Golf Course in Joplin, Missouri. The format will be a 4-person scramble. Entry fee is $75/per player or $300/per team. Corporate Sponsorships are also available. You may play as an individual or can build your own team.

The 2018 tournament will have a morning & afternoon. There will be a Silent Auction/Raffle items at the golf course. Everyone is invited to join us afterwards in the Old Chicago Banquet room, directly after tournament. Silent Auction/Raffle items will also be set up at Old Chicago.
