Mead's Renee Fine and Mt. Spokane's Joanie Pringle Jones & Jody Sanford were recognized Saturday at the Spokane Chiefs hockey game by the Chiefs and Avista Utilities. The ladies were awarded Avista's Community MVP for their work in organizing Mead School District's Athletic Fundraiser - The Cat Scramble Golf Tournament - Last year's event raised nearly $50,000 for Mead and Mt. Spokane Athletic Departments. The work these ladies do behind the scenes is incredible and with a relatively small supporting cast they put together a quality event each and every September. They and there team solicit sponsorships, organize 144+ golfers, order food, entertainment and auction items and all the "little things" that guarantee a successful fund raiser. Next year's event is September 12, 2015 @ Wandermere Golf Course. Click the link on our Athletics Webpage for more information and sign up early if you want to play.
