The 9th Annual Mike Ballard Golf Tournament is fast approaching and organizers are currently looking for donations for this event. This fundraiser was established with local electrician, Mike Ballard, passed away. All money was then donated to Linda, Mikes wife, to assist with medical bills that followed his accident. The fundraiser has continued each year with funds generated donated to local charity’s and/or individuals. This year the committee has chosen Frank Ori who suffered a major stroke in December and who has also played a major roll in organizing this fundraiser each year. There are many ways you can help and donate. There are four different sponsorship categories ranging from $1,000 to $160 with each package including many perks and gifts. Donations can be made at Carbon County Recreation. Additional information can be obtained by calling Linda Ballard at 435.636.3263 or Rose Barns at 435.636.3290.
