Over 100 individuals and local businesses helped sponsor this charity golf tournament.
Pearl Motor Company offered a $10,000 hole-in-one prize. In addition to the golf tournament, there was a 50/50 drawing and a raffle, which included 100 items donated by individuals and local businesses.
Even though it rained early in the morning, the rain did not dampen the spirit of the players in the tournament. Snacks were offered during the tournament play and Nancy Seelow and Glenna Johnson provided a hot meal after the tournament was completed. The profits made by this tournament will be used to support the mission work, goals, and objectives of the Perry Christian Church, such as Community Recess, which is a Saturday morning at the park where children play games and eat lunch at no cost.
