How can you help?
The ReDefined Gives Back Golf Tournament is in its 7th year of giving back to the Treasure Valley. ReDefined Real Estate hosts an 18 hole, four person scramble at Eagle Hills Golf Course each year, and has donated to companies such as Boise Burn Out Fund, Make A Wish Idaho, Camp Lolo, Rise Above, Camp River Run, Laurels Legacy, and a few others. Over the last seven years, they've donated more than $100,000 to local charities in Idaho. The criteria are that the benefactor must be a local charity with all the funds staying in Idaho and can't use more than 30% of the donated money towards the overhead, meaning the money is going to the people who need it.
