The 22nd annual Angus Foundation Golf Tournament raised over $17,500 in Grand Island, Nebraska for education, youth and research.
When 118 golfers and 75 sponsors band together for the 22nd annual Angus Foundation Golf Tournament, good things happen. The event was held at the Indianhead Golf Club in Grand Island, Nebraska, on Tuesday, July 4 in conjunction with the 2023 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) and honored the memory of William “Bill” Davis of Belgrade, Montana. Davis, who passed away in May 2022, was a passionate Angus breeder and avid golfer.
“Year after year, this event serves our Angus family as a source of fun, fellowship and competition,” said Jaclyn Boester, Angus Foundation executive director. “Honoring longtime Angus breeder, Bill Davis, made the event extra special as we gathered to remember a dear friend and support the Foundation’s mission.”
