Alumni Golf Tournament Memorializes Dr. Steve Akimoto
The 12th Annual UMKC Dental Alumni Scholarship Golf Tournament was dedicated to the memory of Steve Akimoto (DDS ’95) who passed away February 24, 2011. Dr. Akimoto was a long-time member and co-chair of the golf committee, and his team had won the tournament four times. He loved the game of golf but more importantly was proud of the number of students who have received scholarships generated by this annual event.
This year’s tournament took place Friday, June 10, 2011, at Shoal Creek Golf Course. The tournament’s sponsors and 116 golfers raised $20,000 for scholarships.
The winners of Flight A were Dr. Bart Putnam, Dr. Tony Marengo, Simon Elliott and Gary Haught.
The winners of Flight B were Dr. Brian Reavley, Dr. Brenton Reavley, Dr. Reese Graue and Mike Super.
Thank you to everyone that supported the tournament! We hope you will join us next year at Shoal Creek Golf Course, Friday, June 8, 2012.
