Annual Charity Golf Classic
Each year, STRATA hosts an Annual Charity Golf Classic that raises funds to assist community projects, local government, and other nonprofit groups. Over the past 17 years, the event has raised over $160,000 that has directly benefitted local charitable entities including families of the Army National Guard, childhood and youth educational programs, Uintah Basin food pantries and the local Search & Rescue Squads.
The 2018 tournaments was held on Friday, May 18th at the Roosevelt City Golf Course and Friday, June 8th at the Vernal Dinaland Golf Course.
This year, STRATA donated $20,000 in proceeds to UBAOG’s Home Delivered Meals Program, a valuable service that has recently suffered through devastating budget cuts.
The Home Delivered Meals Program serves aging residents living in Duchesne and Daggett Counties. These individuals are homebound and do not have caretakers so, for many, the meal deliveries serve not only as a necessary food resource but also as the only daily contact that they receive. Currently, the program delivers meals to nearly 50 residents; however, there is a waiting list of several others who qualify to receive meals but the program’s grant funding has already been extended. A donation from STRATA’s Charity Golf Classic will be used to prepare, purchase, and deliver meals to the additional community members in need of this service.
