Eerkes Memorial Auction & Golf Tournament

Our 2024 event will be held August 8th – 10th!

Created in 2003 as a way to honor the life and legacy of Laura Eerkes, the Eerkes Memorial Auction & Golf Tournament is a premier Tri-Cities fundraising event that helps support thousands of youth in our community. Through golf tournaments, live and silent auctions, and general donations, the annual event raises funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties and Tri-Cities Young Life.

Each year’s event is uniquely themed to create one-of-a-kind memories with friends and family in our community.

Last year, we raised $602,445 for youth in our community during our Eerkes 500 Fundracing Event. Thank you to everyone who made our 2023 event so special!
