“We are sincerely grateful to all of our partners from the Austin and Round Rock area who came out to spend a beautiful day of golfing while helping to raise funds to support our teachers and students,” said Marianne Reap, executive director of the Foundation.
Rounding out the fundraising efforts were 17 Birdie team sponsors and over $17,700 in donations in hole sign sponsorships representing Austin and Round Rock businesses who contributed to the event. In the restaurant row, a unique feature of the PIE Foundation Golf Classic, a total of 13 businesses, including BBQ from Atmos Energy, Hurricane Grill, Gino’s Italian Restaurant, Pok-E-Jo’s and more, provided dinner for the hungry golfers after the round.
Citizens National Bank placed first among the 36 participating teams with Brian Cauthorn, Richard Ethridge, Brantley Jordan and Hunter Pelt. St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center Team 1 placed second, followed by the players representing PT Products coming in third.
