Goodwill's 3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Goodwill Industries of Southwest Oklahoma & North Texas, Inc. is hosting their 3rd Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Monday, September 25th at the Lawton County Club.  Registration opens at 10:30 am (unless you have preregistered) with lunch at 11:00 am and a shotgun start at 12:00 noon.  All monies raised from the golf tournament will benefit our Goodwill programs.  Programs like our Adult Day & Youth Services (for youth with special needs), Workforce Development Center, Career Development Center, VITA (Free income tax preparation during tax season) and our Goodwill Maximum Independence Scholarship program.  With recent federal and state funding cuts that have directly impacted some of our programs, we are hosting this tournament to help offset some of these cuts.

The top 3 teams will be awarded a cash prize of $1,000 for the 1st Place Team, $600 for the 2nd Place Team and $300 for the 3rd Place Team.  We will kick off the tournament with a Putting Contest and the winners will have their choice of a $125.00 Card from a major retailer.  A randomly drawn prize will be awarded an additional team and door prizes will be given to individual players. There will be 5 chances to win a Hole in One prize throughout the course to include a car and motorcycle. 

Anyone that is interested in participating in our tournament as a sponsor to support those in need right here in your community or to register as a player, should contact Missy Beets at 580-583-4206 or Ed Trope at 580-583-5506.
