A foursome calling themselves “Hole in 1,” which included Randy Sperr, Jason Sperr, Elizabeth Sperr and Cindy Rogers, shot a 55 to win the Hermiston/Pendleton Special Olympics Local Program #510 fundraising golf tournament.

In its 13th year, the four-person scramble event teed off Aug. 11 at Echo Hills Golf Course. The “Best Dressed Team” award went to Kraftmaid Cabinets with Jeff Edmundson, Gaylord Allen, Mitchell McClannahan and Madison McClannahan.

Tournament director Kristi Smalley said more than $6,000 was raised, thanks to the support of local businesses and individuals. Gold medal sponsors included Umatilla Electric Cooperative, Knights of Columbus Our Lady of Angels Council #3999, A & A Mini Storage, Roger’s Toyota of Hermiston and Jim Purswell’s Pumps Co., Inc.
