The Elkhart Morning Rotary Club would like to thank all of the sponsors, participants and volunteers who made our first Extreme Bocce Ball Tournament on June 28th a success. Roughly $3,500 was raised for student scholarships and special projects. Even with the extreme heat that day, everyone was smiling and having a good time.

Thank you to the event sponsors: 95.7 The Fan, First State Bank, Pillars of Elkhart, Ancon Construction, Marbach Brady & Weaver, McDowell Enterprises and Elkhart Supply Co.

Thank you to the corporate sponsors: NIBCO, KeyBank, Himco, Tom Naquin, Tiedemann Wines, Rose Brick, GRC Golf Products and Hill Excavating.

Thank you to the hole sponsors: Elkhart Brass and The Troyer Group.

We would also like to thank the city of Elkhart for allowing us to use Central Park, McCarthy’s for supplying lunch, Rodino Liquors for the adult beverages, Insight Accounting Group for the cold towels, Franklin for the brand new bocce ball sets and The Elkhart Truth for the publicity before and after the event.

Discussions have already begun to make next year’s event even better. We hope that you will join us for another fun-filled opportunity to raise money for our community.
