June 9, 2023 - Golf Tournament:
FORT LUPTON, Colo. – Every year The City of Fort Lupton, in partnership with Jacobs, host a golf tournament to benefit programs at the Fort Lupton Recreation Center and the Boys & Girls Club of Weld County. This past Friday, June 9, Coyote Creek Golf Course hosted more than 100 golfers that participated in the fundraiser.
“This golf tournament [has] allowed the teens in the community to go on some very great teen trips throughout the year at a very reduced rate,” said Julie Seedorf-Holm, Assistant Recreation Director for the Fort Lupton Recreation Center.
“The proceeds that we’ll gain today from this event to which you’re supporting is opportunities for our young club kids to get out into the world this summer. They’re going to get out to the Denver Zoo, Denver Museum of Nature & Science, the water park, the Big Balloon Build,” mentioned Terry Adams, CEO of Boys & Girls Club of Weld County.
The fundraiser was very special this year since it was renamed the Jon Mays Memorial Fore Youth Golf Tournament, in honor of Jacobs Project Manager Jon Mays. Jon passed away in August 2022 and served as the project manager of the Jacobs team that manages Fort Lupton’s water and wastewater utilities from 2017 to 2022. Every year he looked forward to organizing this tournament and to give back to the community he served for so many years.
“Anybody that knew Jon knew that he really loved kids,” said Stephanie Mays, Jon’s widow.
Since the tournament first began in 2001, more than $90,000 have been raised. The Mays family was happy and emotional to see that Jon’s legacy continues even after his passing.
“Jon is literally the only person I’ve known that had anything renamed for him and it’s been such an honor to have all of the support from everybody,” mentioned Stephanie Mays.
