The 2015 Kari Wage Golf Scramble Benefiting the Ridgway Chamber: This year we are upping the fun meter and offering our hole sponsors extended reach and client exposure. 

The 2015 Kari Wage Golf Scramble Benefiting the Ridgway Chamber is Saturday, September 12.
The Chamber board has voted to name our annual tournament for Kari to acknowledge her coordinating and fostering this essential Chamber fundraiser and for her many other contributions to the Chamber and community. We’ve promised Kari won’t have to put on the tournament singlehandedly any longer. So don’t be surprised if another Chamber volunteer rather than Kari contacts you to follow up on this letter.

  • +$15 for non-golfing hole sponsors to join the group for lunch.
