Casa Rustica’s annual Charity Golf Tournament, held this year at RedTail Mountain in Mountain City, Tenn., raised $16,000 for the High Country Caregivers Foundation.

Casa Rustica owner Rick Pedroni recently presented the check to Brenda Reece, on behalf of the foundation.

The event was the Italian-American eatery’s sixth annual charity golf tournament in which more than 160 golfers were registered.

More than 200 participants and guests attended the pre-tournament dinner on Friday evening, Aug. 22, at the Appalachian State University Club House, catered by Casa Rustica, which also included a silent auction and raffle.

Total tournament proceeds exceeded $19,000.

“We are extremely grateful to Casa Rustica, RedTail Mountain, local businesses and individuals who donated auction and raffle prizes, volunteers and everyone who participated in making the two-day event such a huge success,” Reece said. “Through the hard work and enormous efforts of Rick and Liz Pedroni and Josh McWhorter, High Country Caregivers Foundation will be able to provide $500 respite vouchers to 32 additional family caregivers, allowing them a much-needed and well-deserved break.”

The Pedronis will also host this year’s annual Caregiver Appreciation Luncheon at their restaurant on Nov. 13.
