District 751 golf tournament raises $15,000 for charity
REDMOND — Machinists Union District Lodge 751‘s annual Guide Dogs of America Charity Golf Tournament raised $15,000 for charity.
“We had a really good day and raised some money for a great cause,” said tournament Chairman Mark Clark. “Our thanks go to all the volunteers and of course, to our sponsors.”
The tournament was a fundraiser for Guide Dogs of America, the California-based charity that provides service dogs and training in their use free of charge to people who are blind or have impaired vision from across the United States and Canada. District 751 is the No. 1 fundraiser for the charity. Over the past five years, it has raised nearly $1.5 million, including a record $384,000 in 2013.
Originally formed in 1935 to represent hourly workers at the Boeing Co., District Lodge 751 of the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers now represents more than 33,000 working men and women at 51 employers across Washington and California.
