The CHELCO Charity Golf Tournament, hosted at Blackstone Golf Course on May 19, raised more than $10,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association and Emerald Coast Autism Center.
The four-person scramble featured 18 teams and nearly 30 total sponsors. Altec, Clary-Glenn Funeral Homes, Farm Bureau Insurance, Southland Utility Services and Tri-State Utility Products each sponsored at the $1,000 Gold Level.
Teams enjoyed refreshments and lunch, grilled by CHELCO, and additional fundraising efforts on the course including a trick shot with an AR-15 sponsored by Horsley Construction Group.
“This event is truly a team effort,” said CHELCO Communications Supervisor Chelsea Blaich. “From the CHELCO employees that volunteer to be there to the generosity of our sponsors and players, it’s an event everyone looks forward to. We’re proud of the total funds raised.”
