Haaski Open Raises $120,000

Alumni, students, faculty, and friends swung their clubs and socialized on May 11 at the seventh annual Haaski Open golf tournament at Claremont Country Club in Oakland.

The tournament raised $120,000 for the Haas Annual Fund through live and silent auctions and corporate and individual sponsors.

The Koret Foundation played a key role by matching all gifts made to the Haas Annual Fund during the event.

During a reception, event sponsor and former Haas School Board member Grant Inman, MBA 69, was awarded the Haaski Leadership Award for his support of the tournament and the school.

Tournament winners in the Foursomes Division were Frank Brunk, Steve Cortese, Stu Engs, and Lew Van Blois. The Fivesomes Division winners were Kathy Andrews, Haas senior development director; Inman; Tracy Knott, MBA 04, and her husband, Kevin Baldwin; and Ian Shea, MBA 08.
