The 26th Annual Bob Rose Golf Scramble Shines Under Sunny Skies!

One-hundred golfers, forty sponsors and vendors, and thirty-six volunteers converged on Hawkstone Golf & Country Club on Friday, April 5th for the 26th Annual Bob Rose Golf Scramble benefitting The Arc of Alachua County and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This year's event ended up being the biggest fundraiser ever and took place under gorgeous sunny skies at Hawkstone Golf & Country Club.

Bob Rose once again lent his name to this year's event, and our premier sponsors, SKY Radio 97.3 FM and Infotech, led the way again with our other sponsors and vendors in supporting The Arc's signature event (see the sponsor banner below).

Just a couple of points worth mentioning: no one shot a Hole-In-One at the tricky par 3 hole No. 8 (so no one went home with a Kia Telluride from SE Car Agency) and no one hit a Hole-in-One at the par 3 No. 13 (so no one won a $25,000 cruise to the Galapagos Islands from Cruise Planner, Inc). Maybe next year?

Also of note, the winning bid on the 3-night, 4-day vacation stay on the beach in Orange Beach, Alabama (courtesy of Norman & Rhonda Lier) came from Stephen Tanner for $1,000.

The winning score of 51 was delivered by the foursome of Nick DeConna, Dwaine Bush, Stoney Smith and Logan Smith (see photo above).

Bob Rose spoke prior to the shotgun start, and Arc President/CEO Mark A. Swain and Adele Elchert spoke afterwards, thanking all our golfers and sponsors.

All in all, it was a fitting way to celebrate a 26-year legacy of love, support and partnership known as The Bob Rose Golf Scramble.
