Hundreds Say:
“Let The 25th Silver Anniversary Bob Rose Golf Scramble Be Mine!”

Bob Rose Golf Scramble

A hundred golfers, and dozens of sponsors, vendors, and volunteers converged on Hawkstone Golf & Country Club on Friday, April 14th for The Silver Anniversary Bob Rose Golf Scramble benefitting The Arc of Alachua County and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Arc of Alachua County’s biggest fundraiser of the year, this year’s scramble mined a lot of silver indeed, as hot temps, blue skies and great golf added up to record proceeds for The Arc.

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 Toyota Tacoma truck from Tomlinson Motor Co.) and no one hit a Hole-in-One at the par 3 No. 13 (so no one won a zero-radius riding mower from Florida Coast Equipment). Perhaps next year?

Also of note, the winning bid on the 'Wheelbarrow of Heaven' (chock full of top shelf liquor and bottles of award-winning wines) was $625 by Stephen Tanner and Doug Morris won a flatscreen TV by winning the Super Ticket drawing. Bob Rose was presented a black leather motorcycle jacket by The clients and employees of The Arc for his two decades of support of this event.

The winning score of 53 was delivered by the foursome of David Kidd, Charlie Stephenson, Austin Leslie and Albie Kozar (see photo above).

Bob Rose and Arc Board President Cathy Costello spoke prior to the event, 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 honor a 25-year legacy of love, support and partnership known as The Bob Rose Golf Scramble.

Special Thanks to Our Sponsors
