On a cold winter’s day in the basement of Ergodyne’s St. Paul, Minnesota headquarters, the concept for an annual summer golf tournament was born. The following summer of 1997, Ergodyne invited friends, families and business partners to golf, be merry and raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) at the first annual 65 Roses Golf Classic: A Tenacious Tournament. The event was an overnight success and is now one of the top fundraisers for CFF — to date contributing more than $2 million dollars to research.
Over the past decade, the 65 Roses Golf Classic: A Tenacious Tournament has evolved into more than a summer golf tournament: it has become the premiere safety event attended annually by leading reps, distributors, manufacturers and end-users. Hosted every summer at one of Minnesota’s most acclaimed and top-rated courses, the 65 Roses Golf Classic: A Tenacious Tournament provides an ideal setting for entertaining strategic business partners, networking with other leading safety industry professionals and contributing to a great cause. The scramble format caters to golfers of all skill levels and emphasizes a competitive yet fun team atmosphere.
