Tucson Police Foundation Golf Tournament and a Hole-In-One Winner!
Earlier this season, the Tucson Police Foundation held its First Annual Charity Golf Tournament at Randolph Golf Course, with proceeds benefitting the Tucson Police Foundation and the Tucson Police Honor Guard Unit.
Bank of Tucson and our Senior VP Ken Krapf have a long history of supporting the Tucson Police Department, and Ken is a long-standing Board Member for the department’s Foundation.
When asked if Bank of Tucson would provide sponsorship for the Tucson Police Foundation, that answer was easy – a resounding YES! We sponsored a foursome as well as a hole-in-one cash prize of $5,000.
To everyone’s surprise, we had a winner! Detective Henry Martinez of the Pima County Sheriff’s Department got a hole in one on the 17th hole! Ken and the Bank of Tucson team knew someone had won when they heard boisterous shouting and congratulating.
Detective Martinez couldn’t have been happier and expressed his gratitude to our bank President Michael Hannley when presented with the $5,000 check.
The Tucson Police Foundation was founded in 2003. It is an independent, non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to fostering public safety through community building, education and outreach. In concert with the Tucson Police Department, the foundation works with a range of community safety advocates to develop and implement public safety and crime prevention programs.
While the city budget provides the necessary resources to fund the operations of the Tucson Police Department, a number of important community programs have been threatened or cut due to lack of funding. The foundation was created as a catalyst in responding to this threat, so that no innovative program would be left behind.
Congratulations again, Detective Martinez, and also to the Tucson Police Foundation for a memorable golf tournament and all of the great work that you do. We’re looking forward to next year.
