Corbin's Cup Golf Tournament for BRIDGE set for July 26

On Thursday, July 26 Thrivent Financial of Hudson will host the seventh annual Corbin's Cup Golf Tournament at Troy Burne Golf Course. This event brings golfers, sponsors, and supporters from the community together in support of BRIDGE and people with disabilities.

Last year, participants and sponsors raised a gross total of $26,000, in support of ongoing BRIDGE programs that allow youth and adults with disabilities to receive year-round day services, find meaningful employment, socialize with friends, and participate in recreational activities.

"BRIDGE is ready for another wonderful day of golf," says BRIDGE Executive Director Peg Gagnon. "Corbin's Cup raises necessary funds to support youth and adults with disabilities and raises awareness among all who attend about BRIDGE and our mission. Bjorn of Thrivent Financial always does an incredible job leading the tournament. We are excited to see everyone back on the course."

"Thrivent Financial is proud to continue the Corbin's Cup again this year," says Financial Consultant Bjorn Nesvold, "This event means a great deal to me. I lost a family member with disabilities years ago and he and his family benefited greatly from a program like BRIDGE. This event is a reminder of his spirit and of the important services organizations like BRIDGE offer."

At $135 per player, the event provides 18 holes of best ball scramble golf, cart, free use of the range and facilities prior to shotgun start, sleeve of golf balls, dinner, and more. Additional fundraising opportunities include mulligans, skill games, a live auction, and a 50/50 raffle. Last year's 50/50 raffle brought in $2,114, split between BRIDGE and a lucky winner.

Sponsorship packages are available to showcase your business and support for BRIDGE starting as low as $150. The success of this event would not exist without local sponsorship.
