Over the last 40+ years, a group of classmates from the class of 1979 and family have gotten together to enjoy a day of friendship, memories and golf. As the event grew a decision was made to give back to Bremerton education and athletics. Over the past 12+ years, the Class of 1979 has donated more than $15k to BHS and local elementary schools to help support a variety of programs.
Each year, the winning team of the tournament (79 Open) gets to choose where they want the donation to go.
This years winning team (Team Bergsma) has elected a donation in the amount of $2k go to the boys and girls golf teams at BHS.
"We are excited to give this donation to the golf team to help support their needs and success in 2021-22" said Tony Boddie, member of the class of 1979 (pictured below with Ryan Nickels).
