The Maple Grove Crimson football team held their fifth annual golf event at Rush Creek Golf Club Monday, June 26.

The fundraiser, which raises money for the high school program, started with a youth event that allowed a young player to be paired with members of the Crimson varsity team. The day finished with a shotgun start followed by a silent auction and appetizer reception. 

"It's fun watching the dynamic of the varsity players and the younger players,"  Head Coach Matt Lombardi said. "You can tell they are more football players than golfers, so that's kind of fun to watch. If anyone hits one near the green, they go a little crazy."
