26th annual tournament supports Alaska education, youth

More than 180 players came out on a rainy day to have fun competing in CIRI’s 26th annual Golf Classic while showing their support for the United Way of Anchorage’s Education Agencies fund, the Alaska Center for the Environment’s Trailside Discovery Camp and the Anchorage Schools Foundation. The tournament began at 7 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 6 at the Moose Run Golf Course on the Fort Richardson Army base.

The United Way of Anchorage is a leader in mobilizing the resources of diverse groups to achieve positive and lasting change in the lives of the people in our community. The Alaska Center for the Environment’s Trailside Discovery Camp emphasizes an appreciation for natural sciences and natural history, and focuses on developing outdoor skills and leadership training. The camp offers in-school outreach programs designed to assist youth in developing healthy outdoor recreation skills while creating life-long connections with Alaska’s environment. The Anchorage Schools Foundation funds projects with small grants to provide classroom supplies, recreational equipment, books, technology, after-school program funding, field trips, art supplies or other needs that are not supported by Anchorage School District funds.

The CIRI Golf Classic is an annual charitable event which originated in 1983 by Peak Oilfield Service Co. colleagues. For the first 18 years of the tournament, the money raised supported The CIRI Foundation, which awards scholarships and grants to CIRI shareholders and their lineal descendants and supports other cultural endeavors. When the Foundation reached its endowment goal, the focus of the tournament expanded to benefit other worthy programs focusing on youth and education.

CIRI would like to thank all of the sponsors and volunteers who helped make the CIRI Golf Classic and Calcutta fundraiser a great success.
