Golfers chip in for charity

The Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual golf tournament Friday to benefit the United Way of Northern New Mexico. Between sponsorships and golfer fees, the tournament raised $6,000 for the cause.

Out of 14 foursomes who competed, Plateau Properties had the best round. Mike Lippiatt, Mike McNiel, Bruce Norman and Marti Hill combined to shoot a 57 and win the scramble.

Mark Sandoval’s team (Sandoval, Eddie Sanchez, Warren Finch and Steve Fellows) won a tie-breaker to take second with a 58 while Edgewater Technical Associates (Scott Rizor, Jeff Theesfeld, Joe Kanzleiter and Mark Rosenberger) took third.

The chamber was thankful to major sponsors: Los Alamos National Bank, the Los Alamos Monitor, the Rio Grande Sun, Christus Health Plan and KRSN; it's hole sponsors: Great Ideas, Edgewater Technical Associates, Strategic Management Solutions, New York Life, The Finishing Touch, LA Daily Post, Kelly Myers – Re/Max, Chris Ortega – Re/Max, Ricoh USA and Griffin & Associates; prize donors: Buffalo Thunder, Don Taylor, Metzgers Do-it-Best Hardware, CB FOX, UnQuarked, and Classic Air Medical; and Bathtub Row Brewing, which provided space for our lunch and awards and gave each golfer a free beverage.
