The 20th annual Carl Koerner Sports Spectacular delivered big bucks again this year for the city's two sports programs.

Paul Koerner of Koerner Distributor, whose father began the golf outing with assistance from local businessman Mark Mayhood and former Effingham High School Principal Russ Marvel, said Thursday's outing at Effingham Country Club generated more than $29,000 for both the St. Anthony Booster Club and the Effingham Sportsbackers.

This year's event also assured that the 20 years of outings have generated more than $500,000 for the athletic programs at St. Anthony and Effingham.
