CV Sports Commission has grant money available

For some six years now, the non-profit Cedar Valley Sports Commission has been on a mission to help local non-profit organizations and events with monetary grants.

Wednesday, however, it was all about golf, as 36 teams took part in the annual Cedar Valley Sports Commission golf outing and fundraiser.

This year's golf outing venue was Pheasant Ridge Golf Course in Cedar Falls. The annual event brings together some of the Cedar Valley Sports Commission's biggest supporters for a day of golf.

These supporters enable the sports commission to award monetary grants to other non-profits all across the cedar valley.

Sports Commission Executive Director, Jim Marlins, says "Our Mission is to create, attract and grow sports events that are going to bring people to the Cedar Valley and impact the economy and the quality of life for everyone living here. We're handed out more than 350-thousand dollars in grants and bid fees to bring events that have an economic impact on the Cedar Valley."
