State GOP Senators Raise $50,000
Utah’s GOP Senate majority raised about $50,000 Tuesday during its 5th annual golf tournament at Thanksgiving Point. About 34 foursomes competed for $1,700 in cash prizes. The tourney is a fundraiser for GOP candidates, but Sen. Dan Eastman said part of this year’s proceeds (approximately $5,000 to $6,000) will go directly to hurricane Katrina evacuees living at Camp Williams.
With a senator stationed at every hole, tourney participants could talk golf or politics or whatever burning issues were on their minds. And just to show that Republicans know how to have fun, a light-hearted auction was held at the tournament’s end. With Eastman as auctioneer, top bidder/lobbyist Doug Foxley paid $500 to see what is on Sen. Pete Knudson’s mind - literally. Knudson was a good sport and uncovered his bald head beneath the shag.
[Note: 100% of the proceeds from Senator Knudson's auction will go to aid Katrina evacuees in Utah.]
