Chipping In: Golf Tournament Participants Help Michael’s House
Seventy-seven golfers played a round for one of our favorite charities on Tuesday at Whiskey Creek Golf Course in Ijamsville, Md. The cause was Michael’s House(link:http://www.michaels-house.org/index.html), a non-profit, grassroots organization that aids the elderly poor around the world. As Michael’s House writes on its website, it serves the elderly poor in the developing world who have become invisible, who receive no funds from government organizations or other large aid foundations. It is through gifts that they now have a face and dignity in their daily lives. We bring aid to the lives that others have deemed hopeless.
Once the final accounting is finished, we expect to find that our guests, friends and colleagues helped raise more than $12,000 for Michael’s House.
Hawkins Electric is proud to have run a fundraising tournament for Michael’s House for four years running.
The winning foursome came from Watkins/Meegan, with the team from Evolve Consulting taking second place. Brian Simpson won the longest drive contest, Andre Gibbs won closest to the pin and Josh Trout won the longest marshmallow shot.Back to all articles
