The Ben Kruse 18 FORE Life Charity Golf Event

The Ben Kruse 18 FORE Life Charity Golf Event

Celebrate | Give | Remember

The Ben Kruse 18 FORE Life Charity Golf Event is our staple event and the reason this charity
organization was founded. In the fall of 2000, four friends stood around a kitchen late one night-early
one morning and discussed the thought of organizing a golf tournament. They acted on the idea and in 2001, the first 18 FORE Life golf tournament took place on June 23rd! The goal of the charity, at the time, was to raise money for The V-Foundation. The group of volunteers quickly stumbled onto the idea of sending love offerings to area families fighting cancer. The immediate response from letters and thank you cards was impactful and proved something special was possible.

In 2004, founder Ben Kruse was taken from us in a tragic accident. This young man’s spirit and soul inspired an entire community to rally together to not only raise money for a charity, but to also celebrate a life. 2005 was the first year the charity broke the $100,000.00 mark. The reputation and credibility was and continues to be on the rise. We are proud to say in 2012, we are fast approaching the major accomplishment of giving away our $1Millionth dollar!

The golf weekend is a party full of hugs, handshakes, laughter, smiles and memories shared. Our tag line is Celebrate | Give | Remember and we are proud to say all of this is accomplished in a big way every first weekend in June as 500 banquet attendees and 386 golfers gather for a guaranteed great time.
