Save The Date! 17th Annual Foundation Golf Tournament 2021

13th Annual Golf Tournament

The Foundation for Blue Valley Lutheran Homes’ 17th Annual Golf Tournament

On August 27, 2021, the Foundation for Blue Valley Lutheran Homes (BVLH), in Hebron, NE, will be hosting its 17th Annual Golf Tournament at the Hebron Country Club.

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.

More details will follow! 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!

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 2021 Golf Tournament Sponsor ( More details to come about this.
  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!

11th Annual Golf Tournament Results

11th Annual Golf Tournament Raises More Than $12,000

The 11th Annual Foundation for Blue Valley Lutheran Homes Golf Tournament was held August 21 at the Hebron Country Club in Hebron, Nebraska. With a beautiful day and 95 golfers, the Tournament was a huge success; raising more than $12,000.

“We continue to be overwhelmed by the support we receive, particularly with the participation in our annual golf tournament,” says Megan Hinrichs, Director of Development.  “Everyone from individual donors, to players, sponsors, and volunteers step up to help make a difference.  It’s extremely gratifying, enabling us to address the needs of our residents.”

The Foundation for Blue Valley Lutheran Homes Golf Tournament began in 2004, as a way to raise funds for remodeling and upgrade projects that normal operating expenses do not cover. This year’s funds are earmarked for The Gardens. The funds will be used to add a driveway to The Gardens entrance making it easier for residents to leave for appointments or for family and friends to come and visit their loved ones.

A beautifully sunny day with a strong breeze set the stage for a wonderful day with golfers enjoying the scramble competition, food and beverages, flag prizes, and a great golf experience.  Golf teams came from Hebron, Ruskin, Bruning, Deshler, Davenport, Lincoln, Omaha and surrounding areas to participate in a day of relaxation and golf.

The tournament champion this year was the Eric Krupicka team with a score of 55. The first flight winners were the team from Capital Sanitary/ LTC Midwest, with a score of 62.  The second flight winner went to the Crop Production Services team with a score of 67.  Each flight winner was awarded a commemorative cooler.
