YMCA Beyond The Green Golf Tournament Raises Money for Community Needs

Proceeds benefit the YMCA of the Capital Area’s Community Outreach Efforts

[BATON ROUGE, LA. October 6, 2020]– The YMCA of the Capital Area hosted its 10th Annual YMCA Beyond the Green Golf Tournament on Friday, October 2. The tournament was held at the Beaver Creek Golf Course in Zachary. It was a beautiful day of golf followed by an awards presentation and lunch provided by Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux in Zachary.

YMCA Golf committee members Andy Blumberg, Michael Breard, John Buzzell, Don Clark, Chad Cole, Ryan Engquist, Matt Falcon, Sara Kleinpeter, Josh Landry, Eddrick Martin, James Moak, Laura O’Brien and Jamie Tanner, helped to plan and organize the event. This year’s tournament hosted more than 100 golfers and raised $53,841 for the YMCA’s Community Initiatives and the Y’s response to the pandemic.
