A whole lot of love brought a full field of golfers to the Woodlands Club in Falmouth on June 25, 2018! In its 26th year, RMHC Maine’s Golf Tournament hosted by the Maine McDonald’s Owner/Operators with presenting sponsor Troiano continues to be a success! Participants come from all over New England to enjoy a day of golf, as well as dinner and a live auction program focused on the impact RMHC Maine makes on children and families from across Maine, New Hampshire and beyond.

Each year, we are so fortunate to be able to offer a Lexus Champions for Charity raffle package, generously donated by Lexus Champions for Charity. This year, a very generous donor stepped forward to purchase all 200 raffle tickets. In lieu of offering the Lexus raffle to our golf players, Boothbay Harbor Golf Resort provided a prize package to raffle on the day of our event to raise additional funds towards our fundraising goals.

This year, our live auction featured packages such as Beer & BBQ, round-trip voucher for Southwest Airlines, Patriots tickets, Maine Bay Cycle and more. During our program, the sponsors who have played a role in the success of this tournament were recognized. A heartfelt thank you to all of our sponsors, auction donors and players who helped us raise nearly $99,000 to support RMHC Maine and its programs. Congratulations to Gary Howard from Urban Garden for winning the Boothbay Harbor Golf Resort prize package!
