HARBOR, Ore. -- Chetco Federal Credit Union's Benefit Golf Tournament has helped raise $25,000 for the Brookings-Harbor Community Helpers Food Share.
The theme for this year's benefit tournament was "No Child Should Go Hungry."
This donation marks the sixth consecutive year for the CFCU Benefit Golf Tournament, which has now donated over $100,000 to the agency. The gift will provide a significant portion of the Food Share's annual operating funds for serving the nutritional needs of Curry County families.
Over 100 golfers began their day at 8:30 a.m. as they teed off in a four-ball shamble. The fun-filled day included a chance at a million-dollar shoot-out and two hole-in-one prizes; a one-carat diamond donated by Harbrook Jewelers and a new Chevy Aveo donated by Coast Auto Center. Grand Sponsors for the tournament were All Star Liquors, Charter Communications and Elk Valley Rancheria.
In addition, winning golfers took home full sets of Titleist irons, Callaway and Cobra irons and Sumo drivers. Winners of the closest-to-the-pin and putting contests won official NASCAR pit jackets and a Dale Earnhardt Jr. racing jacket.
