United Way fundraiser aids nonprofits

The United Way sponsors the Fifth Annual Charity Golf Tournament 11 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17, at Kinderlou Forest Golf Club.

Entry into the golf tournament is $400 for four-player teams, which includes green fees, a cart, goodie bags, lunch and a reception. 

Tee off will begin at 12:30 p.m. with refreshments and the reception following the tournament.

Michael Smith, executive director, says the event proceeds will benefit United Way’s 20 agency partners.

“We still feel the need for awareness, and golf is a safer social distanced sport,” he said. “It is good to get donors out and around the agency directors to connect and learn about the campaign and the mission of the agencies.”

Forty fundraisers for United Way nonprofits were canceled or lacked performance in the past seven months, Smith said.

“There are a lot of needs in the community and people are tough but tired,” he said.

Awards are given to first-, second- and third-place teams, the player who’s closest to the pin and the player with the longest drive. A prize for the first hole in one and raffle prizes are also being given.

To sponsor or register a team, call Melissa Register at (229) 242-2208 or email mregister@unitedwayvaldosta.org.
