The last golf tournament that Rotary held that involved a two-person scramble was their Goodwill Golf Tournament last October, which raised for the club a grand total of $21,247.80 plus expenses. The Rotary spent $10,660 for the event, leaving them with a total of $10,587.80. The Goodwill golf tournament attracted 100 players.
