Thrivent Financial of Hudson will host the eighth annual Corbin's Cup Golf Tournament at Troy Burne Golf Course in Hudson on Thursday, July 18. This event brings golfers, sponsors and supporters from the community together in support of BRIDGE For Community Life.

Over the years this tournament has raised a net total of over $105,000 in support of ongoing BRIDGE programs that allow youth and adults with disabilities to receive year-round services.

"The Corbin's Cup Tournament raises necessary funds for BRIDGE programs," said BRIDGE Executive Director Peg Gagnon, "and this year we've received a very generous sponsorship of $10,000 from Stickney Hill Dairy. We are so grateful for the support that area businesses show us through sponsorship of this event. Ultimately, Corbin's Cup promotes the awareness of the BRIDGE vision that individuals with disabilities are community assets to be nurtured and developed so that they can become welcome, productive and engaged citizens."

At $150 per player, the event provides 18 holes of best ball scramble golf, cart, free use of the range and facilities prior to shotgun start and dinner. Additional fundraising opportunities include mulligans, skill games, a 50/50 raffle and more. Last year's 50/50 raffle brought in $2,380 split between BRIDGE and a lucky winner.

"Thrivent Financial has a longstanding partnership with BRIDGE," said Thrivent Financial Consultant and tournament host Bjorn Nesvold, "and we were so pleased to support an organization that does such important work in our community."
