2007 Golf Tournament Sets Fund-Raising Record

The Idaho State University scholarship endowment received a boost from this year’s Tom Sherwood Memorial Golf Scramble.

North Wind, Inc. and the ISU Foundation announced today that the earnings raised at this year’s event exceeded $12,800. The sum doubles the highest ever attained at any of the previous six tournaments.

“This year’s earnings are extraordinary,” said North Wind President Sylvia Medina. “With strong community and business support, the tournament has grown significantly over the years and has become a model for how to stage a successful charitable event. I want to congratulate the tournament committee on their record-breaking accomplishment and thank them for their hard work and dedication.”

“All of us at the ISU Foundation are delighted with the success of the tournament this year,” stated Joan Hansen, the Foundation’s Stewardship Coordinator. “To us it emphasizes the significance of what can be done when we all pull together toward a common goal.”

“All the elements combined to make this year’s tournament our best yet,” said Lisa Bianco, the tournament director. “The volunteers on the committee worked well together, the staff at Sage Lakes worked hard to support us, the weather was remarkable, and our wonderful sponsors provided us with some fantastic prizes.”

Tom Sherwood, one of North Wind’s first employees, served as the Geosciences department manager until his premature death in 2000. Tom was known as the consummate outdoorsman with a passion for the environment. He graduated from ISU with a dual degrees geology and biology.
