The Seth Pack Golf Classic nearly doubled the amount of participating teams this year.

On Friday, August 2, twenty-eight teams made up of four golfers each, participated in the third annual event. There were fifteen teams last year. "I think it went extremely well," commented Chris Pack. "We are so appreciative of the amount of support we receive for this event." Pack went on to explain they are very humbled by the amount of businesses and individuals that contributed to the day. "We are so grateful to everyone that sponsored or hole or volunteered their time or donated items for the raffle," he said.

Pack is expecting that they raised roughly $6,000 from the event. All of the funds are donated to ARC of Southeastern Minnesota and go to help families who have children with Down syndrome. Money raised during the golf tournament has gone towards helping families buy glasses, sign language videos and a adaptive stroller, just to name a few. Families who have a child with Down syndrome are eligible to apply for a $200 grant once a year. All applications are approved by the Pack family and in three years, they have not turned down any applicant.
