A spotless event for two sparkling causes

Rajkumar Manickam and Gary Gilman of SteamMaster

The Shaw Regional Cancer Center and Vail Valley Charitable Fund were the winners who cleaned up at the recent SteamMaster Charity Golf Tournament. SteamMaster Restoration and Cleaning, an affiliate member of the Vail Board of REALTORS, VBR, hosted the fundraising tournament on Sept. 23, 2005, at Cotton Ranch Club Golf Course. The tournament was organized in memory of long-time Vail Valley resident, Kim Matthews, former marketing director of SteamMaster, who passed away this May after a seven month battle with cancer.The Shaw Regional Cancer Center is the only cancer facility serving the mountain communities of the Central Rockies and provides state-of-the-art care. The Vail Valley Charitable Fund assists individuals who live and work in the Vail Valley and have critical financial need due to medical catastrophes, accidents, or long-term illness.

SteamMaster was joined by many fellow VBR member sponsors to bring this charitable event to fruition: Vail Daily, WestStar Bank, First Bank, Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Blue Sky Mortgage, First American Heritage Title Company, Slifer Designs, and Stewart Title Vail. Many other companies and individuals in the community also generously donated to the cause. The day was beautiful; the course was challenging; and the camaraderie was prevailing; all serving to create a fun-filled event benefiting those in the Vail Valley and honoring a much admired and beloved member of the community.
