14th Annual Foundation Golf Tournament

Blue Valley Lutheran Homes Annual Golf Tournament

On August 17, 2018, the Foundation for Blue Valley Lutheran Homes (BVLH), in Hebron, NE, will be hosting its 14th Annual Golf Tournament at the Hebron Country Club.

*Click Here for More Information and a Sponsorship Form*

The Foundation and their fundraising efforts make it possible for our residents and staff to enjoy the “extras” beyond the basics that daily operation funds provide. Some of our residents don’t have family or friends who provide for them so the work of the Foundation is vital for their care and comfort.

Our 2018 proceeds will be used to purchase a handicap accessible golf cart to assist in transporting residents to appointments, as well as get residents out of the facility and in to the community. We are joining this year’s funds with the money raised from last year to purchase the cart. Please help us make significant strides toward this goal!

Fees are $240 for a four person team. This includes coffee and rolls, boxed lunch and grilled burger meal for supper. Team check-in begins at 8:00 am and teams will tee-off at 9:00 am. Space is limited to 26 teams, so start planning early! **Entry forms due August 3rd, 2018**

We welcome you sponsoring or participating in one or all of these ways:

  1. Create or Sponsor a Team – We are accepting only 26 teams, so register early!
  2. Tournament Sponsors – All tournament sponsors will be listed on printed materials and we’ll post your business on our website as a 2018 Golf Tournament Sponsor ( See sponsorship form for more details.
  3. Tournament Gift Bag Sponsor – Each golfer gets a favor bag. Gifts can be golf balls, tees, koozies, mugs, towels, hats, notepads, pens, etc. It’s a great way to advertise your business!
  4. Food and Drink Donations – It’s as simple as providing water, sports drinks, juice bottles, items for grab-and-go breakfast or boxed lunch.

Please help us make significant strides toward this year’s goal!

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Megan Hinirchs at 402-768-3916 or email
