Recap – 2018 Golf Tournament

| May 15, 2018

During two beautiful days on The National Golf Club of Kansas City’s Signature and Deuce courses, First Hand ushered in a new generation of our annual golf tournament. As a tribute to two of our founders, the annual event has been renamed the Jeanne and Neal Patterson Legacy Golf Tournament.

Now its 23rd year, the tournament expanded to include a Day 1 Community Round with 76 golfers hitting the links for First Hand. The 19 teams participating raised $60,000 of the overall fundraising total. It was an incredible first year for this new tradition.

The Day 2 outing saw a whopping 284 golfers teeing off for First Hand. After a breezy day of golf, Team Apex edged out the Kelly Construction Group team in the Master Playoff.

Every year, the First Hand Golf Tournament is about much more than golf. Thanks to the generosity of all our sponsors, the tournament raised $1,000,000 to build healthier tomorrows for children around the world.

Congratulations to all our winners!
