The Salvation Army of Altus, serving Jackson and Greer counties, is scheduled to host its sixth annual golf tournament this summer. The net proceeds from the tournament will benefit The Salvation Army’s Soup Kitchen and food pantry and ongoing social service programs.
The tournament is themed “golfing for soup” and will include a four-person team scramble format with prizes awarded for closest to pin, longest drive and longest putt. A silent auction is also slated.
Organizers plan a shotgun start 9 a.m. July 16 at Quartz Mountain Golf Club.
The Salvation Army serves over 4,000 meals annually through the soup kitchen at no cost to people that would go hungry otherwise, so participation is requested and encouraged. It is only through the public’s support that The Salvation Army is able to provide assistance to those in need. Levels of sponsorship include gift only, hole sponsor, hole and team sponsor, corporate sponsor and event sponsor. Entry fees include green fee, cart, gift bag and lunch during awards ceremony.
