Congratulations to the Winners of the 2nd Annual High Fives Foundation
Charity Golf Tournament – Presented by Spine Nevada
[Truckee, CA) May 22, 2012 — The High Fives Non-Profit Foundation would like to thank the 116 golfers that participated in the 2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament presented by SpineNevada at the Golf Club at Gray’s Crossing as well as the tremendous support from sponsors.
Great weather and a beautiful course at the Golf Club at Gray’s Crossing set the stage for a season opener unlike any other. Northwestern Mutual’s sponsorship of the Break the Glass Contest was a spectacle captured beautifully on GoPro HD Hero 2 cameras. The field of competitors then enjoyed a round filled with laughs and long drives in the scramble format play. Also, on hole #12, BigTruck Headwear set up shop with the first ever drive-in, drive out on site custom hat stitching booth. The event concluded with the awards ceremony, beats from DJ One Truest, a delicious catered dinner from Full Belly Deli, and satiating spirits from DBI/Miller/Coors and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
“To once again host the Annual High Fives Charity Golf Tournament marked an excellent kick-off to the 2012 season at the Golf Club at Gray’s Crossing. The creative and entertaining contests allowed for great times to be had by all. Thanks to the efforts of the High Fives Foundation, the event was bigger and better and we look forward to seeing everyone join us next year for the 3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament!” – Travis Alley (Club Pro at the Golf Club at Gray’s Crossing)
