Can’t believe this was our 5th year putting on this tournament! On August 12th, 2017 our Annual ‘For Pete’s Sake’ Golf Tournament took place and was the best one yet. The tournament raised over $40,000 and brought many friends and family together once again to celebrate the life of Pete.
To no surprise, the championship belts were awarded to Brian Kane, Chris Mabry, Ryne Fischer, and Rich Pendergast of Ryan Lawn and Tree. Thanks to all those who came out, we couldn’t do it without you!

Peter’s high school soccer coaches at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Overland Park were looking for a way to honor two fallen teammates: Peter, class of 2006, and Aaron Cobb, Class of 2009. They settled on ‘The Clevinger-Cobb Memorial Cup’ to go to the winner of STA Men’s Soccer vs. archrival, St. James Academy. The trophy, pictured below, is a traveling trophy residing at the winner’s school until next year’s match. The Clevinger family looks forward to making the trophy presentation each year.

The 4th Annual For Pete’s Sake Golf Tournament took place August 13th, 2016. With the continued support and help from our family, friends, and supporters we raised over $30,000 for the Peter L. Clevinger Legacy Foundation!
Highlights of the day included a visit from Benedictine College’s own, Rocky the Raven, who was eager to entertain and take pictures with the golfers. Each golfer also left with a complementary Nike golfer hat with the foundation logo. The 2016 Championship Belts went to Curt Marshand, Brian Kane, Chris Mabry, and Ryne Fisher, making them winners of three of the past four tournaments. Thanks to all who helped out for another memorable and fun filled day!

Out of the 40 teams, the Austin Wealth Strategies team consisting of Rick Austin, Mike Sobba, Tim Barry and Matt Barry took home the championship belts. Although they won’t admit to it, the Mallard Duck painting (last place award) went to Adam Love, Kyle Kremers, Tyler Shepherd, and Mitch Mattix. This was also the first year we had an official after party at The Well in Waldo, which was a lot of fun for those able to keep going after a long and fun day on the golf course.

The second For Pete’s Sake Golf Tournament Champion had to be settled by a 2 hole playoff. After tying on hole 18, the winner was finally crowned. The championship belts went to Curt Marshand, Brian Kane, Chris Mabry and Ryne Fisher, making them back-to-back champions.
