Union City – It was a great day at beautiful Eagle’s Landing Country Club in Stockbridge with over 123 golfers, 28 sponsors, and Consumer Investigator, Dale Cardwell coming together to enjoy a day of golf while helping children in need. This year’s “Golf Fore Kids” Classic raised over $46,000 to support the abandoned, abused, and neglected children who now live at The Children’s Village at Christian City.
“We are overjoyed with the record-setting amount raised this year,” said Christian City President/CEO Bob Crutchfield. “We’re grateful to Dale Cardwell and all of our sponsors and golfers. Because of the generous support we receive from events like this, our children are able to receive the loving care they deserve. We hope everyone had a great time while supporting this important ministry.”
First place went to RJH, Inc., whose foursome included: Roy Hill, Sammy Craig, Dave Maddox, and Greg Thornton (pictured at right with Phil Kouns, COO of The Children’s Village). The winners of the Church Challenge were from Elberton Christian Church – Jay Akin, Rusty Burdette, Steve Banks and Kevin Dye. To see the photo gallery from the event, please click here.
