On Friday afternoon October 3rd, the inaugural Kick-Back Campaign was in full swing at Sagamore Golf Club in North Hampton. After the successful Jarkko Tuinomen golf tournament on Monday, the baseball department enjoyed a bit of the spotlight on Thursday and hosted their first ever Home Run Derby alongside the Team Trevor cystic fibrosis organization.
You would think that another golf tournament was in store at Sagamore Golf and you would be right, but there is a slight twist to this event. Seacoast United organized the first ever Nate’s Fall Classic, a foot golf tournament held at Sagamore’s exclusive foot golf course. Foot golf is exactly what you think it would be, golf with a soccer ball. We had over 80 players take part in the tournament and it is safe to say that the entire event was a massive success. All the proceeds for the event will go to the Nate Hardy Scholarship which helps raise funds for players’ traveling expenses.
Nate’s parents, Steve and Donna, were on hand to address the eager crowd along with Sagamore Golf’s Vice-President Ty Sanborn. Ty had this to say about the special day, “We are extremely happy with the amount of people that turned up for the first ever Nate’s Fall Classic. It looked like all the kids and parents had a great time out and you couldn’t have asked for a nice day weather-wise. Hopefully the Foundation was able to raise some funds for a very important cause.”
James Peterson, Director of Sales & Marketing, also commented on the event.
“Nate’s Fall Classic was a great day out for everyone involved. We have never really had a kid oriented charity event before and once we found out about Sagamore’s Foot Golf course there was no going back. The support we received from everyone was very special including Steve and Donna who were kind enough to stop by and say a few words. It is worth noting that Ty and his crew kindly donated all the player fees that day to the Foundation. Support from the community is the reason why we are able to do the things we do and we are very grateful.”
