ERIE, Colo.—The 3rd Annual 2020 ASA Colorado Golf Tournament brought members together for an eventful day of golf, contests, prizes, relationship building and networking opportunities this past weekend on Saturday.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better day,” said ASA Colorado Executive Director Julie Massaro, as sunshine and temperatures in the 80s at the Colorado National Golf Course greeted 34 teams of 136 players, who helped raise close to $1,000 for the association’s scholarship. “We also hosted a group of golfers from Lincoln Tech on Saturday — two faculty members and two students — compliments of Advanced Auto Parts.”

Jasper Engines & Transmissions ran a raffle that raised most of the monies during the tournament and with NAPA’s sponsorship, ASA Colorado was able to get it up to the $1,000 mark. “We award scholarships every February and/or March to students at Lincoln Tech in Denver. Last year we gave $5,000 total: two $2,000 scholarships and one $1,000 scholarship — they really appreciate it.”
