Because of you, we raised more than $600,000 for local youth at our 2023 event!

Packed with exciting live auction moments, a great golf tournament, competitive horse race, and record-breaking support, our 2023 Eerkes Memorial Auction & Golf Tournament was an event to remember!

Thank you for making this year’s event so special!

In total, we raised $602,445 for youth in our community during our Eerkes 500 Fundracing Event. All money raised will support kids and teens at our local Boys & Girls Clubs and at Tri-Cities Young Life.
