PARK CITY, Utah — The Jeremy Ranch Golf Course hosted, for its seventh time, The Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Intermountain Area (RMHCIA) Golf Tournament on Monday. The sold out event was attended by 140 golfers, additional participants who didn’t want to golf but did want to donate, one mama moose, and two baby moose.
Stephanie Stevens, Event and Fundraising Manager for the RMHCIA, told TownLift, “Just over $145,000 came in to help pediatric patient families who are supporting their children who are receiving treatments at the Intermountain area hospitals. We provide a home-away-from-home that serves and sustains these families. The money raised at Jeremy Ranch gets dispersed, among other facilities, to the three Family Rooms at Primary Children’s Hospital.”
‘Winner winner chicken dinner’ is an applicable phrase herein as the two tying winning teams are from the one family who owns and operates the McDonalds in Park City. Brothers Cory and Allan Watson shot 51 in the scramble format. Bragging rights go to Cory though who won the one-hole tiebreaker.
Stevens said, “All of our services of the Ronald McDonald House are offered completely free to the families. And it costs about $120 per family per night. They cover everything, the transportation, the lodging, the care, all of it, so that just kind of puts in perspective how significant raising funds like this for the golf tournament is for the families we serve, and we serve a lot of families. This was a record breaking year for us in terms of funds raised and we look forward to holding this fun tournament again next year at Jeremy Ranch.”
