The Sun Lakes Women’s Association thanks everyone who helped make the 2015 Spring Fling Golf-Orama at Palo Verde the biggest and best success ever.

Thank you, thank you, thank you each and every one of you who attended our golf tournament. We are just five years young and had a full field. We had a blast; there were donuts and coffee with registration, raffles and giveaways at lunch. Speaking of lunch, Chef Marshall put out a grand buffet.

Most of all we need to thank our Palo Verde Pro Shop Manager Greg Tokash and his fantastic staff for making it all come together. For those who don’t know, Greg has become a great addition to the festivities; his glib gift for announcing the scores and winners created fun for all.

We need to thank the community who gifted the certificates and items that made up the raffle items – and there were some dandies. A silent auction was held for the Arizona Grand for two nights with four rounds of golf with carts. Wow, someone walked off with a great weekend.

Okay, I haven’t missed the great group of golfers who showed up to have fun with the different games we had set up on certain holes. They created another element of craziness. We even had a very close hole-in-one on No. 14 for the Classi Golf Car cart. They have been part of our tournament every year.

I can’t forget to thank the golf committee led by Dianne Lyon, who made our tournament so successful. You have to be proud of the work they did starting in January. This is a dedicated group who deserve a big thank you. See you next year; watch for the date in a future article.
