If you're gonna fundraise, you might as well have FUN doing it.
For nine years straight, that's been the motto of the Behn Brothers at their annual golf tournament, held just outside of the National Clydesdale Association's home in Pecatonica, IL.
The event began back in 2009, thanks to a great idea by Andy Behn (and a lot of help from family, friends and fellow breeders), and has helped to support each World Clydesdale Show since 2011.
The 2018 World Clydesdale Show is no different. The Behn Brothers have planned a generous Silver Sponsorship donation ($10,000) from tournament proceeds. After this past June's tournament, they’re more than halfway there. 30 foursome's competed and took part in a full day of golf, dinner, raffles and a ton of laughs.
"The stakes aren't high, but we all have a blast," says event organizer Ali Behn. "I can’t think of a better way to help support our breed. And the best thing? It’s easy enough that anyone, anywhere, could host a similar event. The good times alone are well worth it.”
Next year's tournament is already planned for June 10th.
Thank you Behn Brothers, and everyone who has helped to contribute to the event’s success, for your creativity and World Clydesdale Show support. For more information on the Behn Brothers Golf Tournament, contact Ali at firstname.lastname@example.org.
