Boosters golf tournament a huge success

LANCASTER – The Antelope Valley Sheriff’s Boosters Golf Tournament this week was deemed a success, with record participants and record money raised for the sheriff’s station.

About 120 deputies, local leaders, and community members teed off at Monday’s all-day tournament at the Antelope Valley Country Club.

The tournament raised a little over $130,000, the most money ever raised in the annual tournament’s history, said Lancaster Community Relations Deputy Michael Rust.

“One hundred percent of the proceeds go to the sheriff’s station, Rust said, adding that the majority of the funds were raised though sponsorships from local businesses.

“I would like to, on behalf of the Sheriff’s Station, thank all the businesses in the Antelope Valley that supported the tournament this year,” Rust added.

The AV Sheriff’s Boosters will use 100% of the proceeds to purchase needed equipment for the sheriff’s station, Rust said.

“In the past, they’ve bought us things like injury gear and less lethal weapons,” Rust said, “the things that the county can’t buy us because they don’t have the money.”
