COON RAPIDS, Minn. -- HOM Furniture's 30th annual HOM Open Charity Golf Tournament supported the Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge (MNATC) and other charities by raising over $300,000.
Over 270 participants enjoyed a perfect day on the greens and fairways at Majestic Oaks Golf Course, in Ham Lake, Minnesota. "It's a day we always look forward to," said HOM Furniture President and CEO Rod Johansen. "It's exciting to see so many of our local and industry partners supporting an important cause. We are fortunate to have our tournament expand each year, and after 30 years it has become a part of our culture at HOM Furniture."
The day began with skills challenges and brunch, and the tournament opened with the national anthem performed by the MNATC choir in front of eager golfers. The day concluded with dinner, prizes and a re-cap of the year from Pastor Rich Scherber, Executive Director of MNATC, along with two MNATC students sharing their success stories. Scherber described how the HOM Open has been an important part in the transformation of MNATC from a single facility to the recent purchase of their thirteenth facility serving over 900 men, women and teens with their long-term faith based recovery program.
