Fighting Cancer with the Ted Vander Meer Memorial Golf Classic

TVMPreviewThumbnail-01

The countdown is on! This month, CLS Team members, customer partners and community members will come together in honor of former CLS owner, Ted Vander Meer.

This will be the 7th year for the Ted Vander Meer Memorial Golf Classic.

Ted's sons, Ron and Kurt, who took over the family business from their father, put together the golf tournament in his memory.

"We thought what better way to honor him than to raise money for the American Cancer Society," said CLS President and Owner, Kurt Vander Meer.

The 2019 TVM Memorial Golf Classic is being held August 19th at Gull Lake Country Club.

"The event itself constantly reawakens us about our father and what he meant to us and the cause that we're raising money for is so near and dear to us and so many people," said Ron Vander Meer, CLS Chairman of the Board and Owner.

The event has raised nearly $190,000 for the American Cancer Society over the last 7 years and CLS hopes to reach a quarter of a million dollars with this year's total, all in memory of Ted Vander Meer and to honor others who are also battling cancer.

"It's a great way for us to bond together for the same cause, it's not just business, this is personal," said Kurt Vander Meer.
