Golden Era Golf Course hosted 54 golfers last month for a fundraiser for two women, Beth Swanson and Emma Salter, battling cancer. Beth Swanson is the office manager for Idyllwild School, and Emma Salter went to Idyllwild School (K-8) and graduated from Hemet High School. Salter played sports for the Hemet Unified School District (HUSD) and graduated about seven years ago. Idyllwild School is part of the HUSD.
“It was a great day,” said co-sponsor Jim Wiesen. “The community support was unbelievable. I wanted to give a special thank you to Michelle Wiesen, Mary Norris and Golden Era Golf Course. We were able to donate around $2,700 to each person.”
Golden Era donated the golf course for the event. Salter was unable to attend because she was receiving treatment. Her mother, Sally Salter, was able to attend the event.
