Sandbar Golfers at the Spurling Scramble

Some of the Sandbar crew headed out to Alvamar last Thursday for the fifth annual Spurling Scramble, the annual golf tournament put on by the Lawrence Police Officers Association, Fraternal Order of Police and International Association of Firefighters.

"Violet's Valor" bracelents were also available to purchase, to help support a local family's expenses while their daughter fights leukemia.

The Sandbar sponsored one team of golfers: Phil, Joe, Tyler and one of Tyler's friends. Dave did what he does best- dispensed shots to golfers and took pictures of them in the Sandbar beach-themed cutout. He also got to hang out with Karen and Kalissa, which is probably the real reason he opted for that job instead of golfing.

Andrew's other employer, adidas, also sponsored a team. Andrew and Tegan played on that one along with some guys Andrew works with. The adidas team won first place in the second flight, and the Sandbar team won second place in the second flight. We've got trophies to prove it!

It was super windy that day, but at least it didn't storm. Everyone had a great time, and we always enjoy supporting great causes like this one. Check out our Facebook page to see pictures of golfers with the photo cutout.
