Since 2008, Les Olson Company has been the marquee sponsor of Amicus Open, an annual golf tournament put on by the Intermountain Research & Medical Foundation. The 19th annual Amicus Open tournament was held on June 13, 2016 at the beautiful Wasatch Mountain State Park Golf Course in Midway, Utah. The event attracted 280 golfers and 36 dedicated volunteers, including some of Les Olson Company’s employees.
During registration and before lunch, golfers bid on remarkable silent auction items. These items were generously donated from companies all across the state. Following the morning round of golf, participants were treated to a barbecue lunch, awards ceremony, and huge prize giveaways! One prize included a 60-inch SHARP TV, donated by Les Olson Company.
The amazing $144,000 dollars that was raised through this event will benefit Intermountain Research and Medical Foundation’s Arthritis Fitness Program through TOSH. This program offers a multi-dimensional approach to the treatment of osteoarthritis. From physical therapy, nutrition, stress management, exercise and surgical options, our trained experts help participants manage and improve arthritis symptoms. The program is available to osteoarthritis sufferers at little to no cost.
Les Olson Company was proud to be a part of the 2016 Amicus Open and we look forward to next year!
