2020 – 10th Annual Golf Tournament Success

The day began foggy with rain in the forecast. There were just a few sprinkles and cloudy with a little sun which helped keep the temperature down. Though the greens were a little slow it was all in all a good day at Dorchester Golf Course in Fairfield Glade. Jack Sixkiller and Grant Goodman and their staff took care of EVERYTHING from putting snacks and water in carts keeping me informed with ongoing changes in the weather.  The ladies at the snack bar were real troopers feeding the 152 players.

We are thankful for our volunteers Josh Hudgins that picked up water at Smart Bank and the Hole Sponsors signs and took them to the course the day before. And Amanda Elmore who took donated water from First National out on Friday and was our photographer for the event.  Board Member Allison Brendel and community volunteers Rebecca Adams and Colleen Mall assisted Amanda with the photos the day of the tournament.  Janie Allen our office volunteer prepared  all the snack packs.  Also thanks to all of you that helped recruit teams, secure prizes and sponsorships.

We had Thirty-eight teams play and with the generous hole sponsors and prize donors we raised $7,956 the 2nd most money ever raised in our 10-year history! We had 38  Hole Sponsors and 11 were new sponsors.  This will provide funding for 36 local non-profits.These non-profits provide programs and services that benefit people of all ages.
