Thank you for helping us make the 2014 Chaplaincy Golf Classic a great success. The words I use to describe this year’s tournament are expansion and development.
We moved the Golf Classic from Woodland to the Longview Country Club, and we moved the tournament from July to September. This enabled us to have a longer time to plan following the auction breakfast in April, and it helped us to move it in a more central location for most county golfers. We are grateful to the Longview Country Club for allowing us to invade their club for a day, and they gave us a very reasonable price.
A BIG thank you goes out to our new up and running fundraising committee, especially Jeanette Scibelli, Bob and Roxanne Stuart, and Malcom Worrell, along with a cadre of other volunteers who worked for weeks to provide a well thought out and enjoyable experience for all the golfers.
At the 2013 tournament we had 11 teams and 46 golfers. This year we increased to 17 teams and 67 golfers. Last year we profited $4000.00, and this year we made $7,500.00. Because of the hard work of our volunteers we profited 62% of our income over the 50% profit we had in 2013.
We are grateful for the many individuals, businesses, and organizations that sponsored the Golf Classic. Each of them are listed under “Events” on the website. Please think of them when you need services in the community.
Congratulations to Bill Marcum, Barry Verrill, John Mills, and Jeff Gray who won the men’s divisions, and congratulations to Andy and Noelle Hamilton, Carol Capps, and Jacquin Ellis who won the mixed team division.
We are hoping to have the 2015 Chaplaincy Golf Classic about the same time next year, and we are talking to the Longview Country Club about keeping it at their club. So put us on your calendar for next September and begin to spread the news to all your fellow golfing friends!
