Hughenden Golf Club Hosts Entertainment, Raises Money for Clubhouse Addition
The Hughenden Golf Club organized a successful fund raising event in the Czar hall on Saturday night with live entertainment.
Three hundred people filled the hall and paid cash during a silent auction, enjoyed a hot meal and were then entertained with an evening with The Legends.
Spear-heading the event to raise funds for an addition at the Hughenden golf clubhouse were directors Jack Swanson and Brad Johnson.
The chairmen of the building committee told The Provost News in an interview that a 600 square foot addition to the south end of the clubhouse and 680 square feet on the west side (that includes new kitchen space) has been done and the project is estimated to cost between $60,000 and $80,000.
The project is not finished inside but they expect it to be ready by the start of golf season.
The men said that they were hoping to clear about $20,000 at the Saturday night fund raising eventand were surprised later in the evening when $32,000 was raised from the silent auction.
There are about 250 people who belong to the Hughenden Golf Association.
Last fall the association put up a 40 by 8 foot hall that cost $38,000 to be used to store carts and equipment. That building has been paid for.
