Each year supporters of First Story come together for a first class golf tournament and charity event to celebrate, network and raise money for First Story. In 2016, the golf tournament sold out for a second year in a row as Tetherow hosted its largest golf event. The opening night bash saw record attendance and, after all was said and done, raised over $200,000 helping advance First Story's affordable housing efforts in Central Oregon and beyond. Your investment has a lasting impact on the families we serve. Over 80% of every dollar donated to this event goes directly to help us build homes. All donations are tax deductible; our Tax ID# 91-1755886.
