We were especially honored with the attendance of representatives from the Mulliganeers, our 2016 PLUS Foundation Chapter Charity.  We greatly appreciate the efforts of our co-chairs, Al Roberts and Adam Taylor, and to our remarkable volunteers: Kelvin Mulvaney, Joel Vander Vliet, Jeremy Macklin, Jason Taylor, Katie O’Hara, Tylor Dunnican, Lindsey Woods, Nathan Randall, Chris Nadeau, Angela Cox, and Peggy Reetz. And of course, as always, our tremendous event coordinators: Wanda and Patrick.

We raised close to $18,000 for the PLUS Foundation!
