If you live in San Ramon, you know there is a rather large herd of turkeys that wanders at will around the open space and yards off of Crow Canyon. We can’t say for sure if they wander onto the Blackhawk Country Club golf course, but hopefully on November 10th, they made themselves scarce, because on that day there was a Turkey Shoot Out going on and golf balls were flying!
On a rather brisk day, 97 golfers played a round and donated 64 turkeys to our Food Bank. A portion of the entrance fee also benefited the Food Bank. To top off this event, an extra $50 was donated from a gracious member who didn’t even play in the event.
Everyone had a great time playing for a good cause and a big round of applause came when Tony Gill, Head Golf Professional at Blackhawk, announced that they had all sponsored the 64 turkeys!
Thank you Blackhawk golfers, for making this Thanksgiving a little easier for the people we serve.
