Friends of Methodist Children’s Home teed off in support of the ministry during the 2016 Golf Classic on Oct. 21 at Twin Rivers Golf Club in Waco. Twenty-one teams competed in a four-man scramble tournament for the annual fundraiser.
“The MCH Golf Classic is a great opportunity to share the ministry and mission of MCH with members of the community, and this year’s tournament was a great success!” said Kelly Lawson, special gifts coordinator. “We are thankful for all of those that participated – either as players or as one of our generous sponsors. The funds raised through this event will impact those we serve in a big way!”
The team from Central National Bank, Matt Smith, Dan McLaughlin and Robbie Hetland, won first place and received trophies and golf bags. The team from St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Corsicana took home the second place prize of Titleist Pro-V1 golf balls.
Other prizes included a football signed by Troy Aikman, a gift basket donated by Baylor University’s golf program, golf lessons from Heart of Texas Golf Academy, a gift basket from Cabela’s, basketball tickets donated by Baylor IMG, and several gift cards. D1 Sports Training also gave away a two-week membership to each participant and gave away two three-month memberships and two six-month memberships in the drawing. MCH students in the agriculture program also donated several of their own projects created during class as prizes for the drawing.
Sykora Family Ford sponsored the hole-in-one contest on hole 17. Integ donated banners and signs for the event while Coca-Cola, Rudy’s BBQ and Chick-fil-a provided food and beverages.
