  • The 2019 Spokane Inland Northwest Chapter Kick-off event is in the books.  It was a tremendous success with over 50 new and old members attending, plus a few guests!  The food was excellent and the Dessert Bar received rave reviews.  There is no better way to welcome Spring than mixed berry or strawberry shortcake with all the toppings.

    We give shout out to all of our sponsors and donors for the successful raffle.  Many walked out with beautiful baskets and gifts including golf lessons, complimentary rounds, wine, some fun tickets to local events, and more.  Thank you all, for donating.

    Alot of golf information was shared, and if it all felt a little overwhelming, there is another opportunity to learn at the Member Meet Member Breakfast on Saturday, April 20th.  Bring your questions and we will try to answer them all!

    In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures from Thursday’s event.
