Bemidji, Minn. – The 15th Annual Beltrami Electric Touchstone Energy® Open was held August 23 at Castle Highlands Golf Course, and raised $9,300 for the United Way of the Bemidji Area.

"Beltrami Electric Touchtone Energy Golf Tournament has been a staple event for the United Way of Bemidji Area. Not only has the tournament given hundreds of participants the opportunity to support their community, it's also helped thousands of people in our community to thrive. The event has raised nearly $129,000 since its inception," said Denae Alamano, executive director for the United Way of Bemidji Area. "To give some examples of what those funds have done, that's the equivalent of over 500,000 meals, 26,000 weekend food packs, 5,000 night stays at a local shelter, or providing over 1,000 children a safe and educational place to go after school for a year. We can't thank Beltrami Electric and their staff enough for the impact their event makes year after year!"

Beltrami Electric Cooperative thanks the businesses, the 110 golfers and the tournament volunteers on behalf of the United Way of Bemidji.
