North Plains, OR. More than 250 golfers turned out on a warm sunny day to support the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette and help provide funds for scholarships. Bob Hall, President and CEO at the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette and Troy Weller, President of Precision Construction Company helped get the ball rolling at the event. The 14th Annual YLinks Tournament on September 10th, at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Course raised almost $80,000. The funds will support YMCA programs throughout the Portland/Vancouver area. The goal is to remove economic barriers so that children, families and adults of all ages may access programs that build spirit, mind and body while connecting individuals and communities.
