Morris Thompson Memorial Golf Classic

Doyon Foundation established the Morris Thompson Memorial Golf Classic in honor of the late Morris Thompson, who served as the president/CEO of Doyon, Limited from 1985 until his passing in 2000. The event raises money for Doyon Foundation’s Morris Thompson competitive scholarships.

2016 Event

Doyon Foundation and Doyon, Limited thank the 120 golfers, 50 sponsors and more than 50 volunteers who came out to support this year’s event, which took place June 16 and 17 at the Chena Bend Golf Course on Fort Wainwright in Fairbanks. The two-day event included a skills tournament and reception and Calcutta on Thursday, and the golf tournament and banquet on Friday. While amounts are still being tallied, preliminary estimates indicate the event raised nearly $93,500. Read more about the 2016 event on our blog and find photos on Facebook.
