CHELCO held it's 3rd annual charity golf tournament at a local course on March 30, 2018, to benefit two health-related organizations.
The event raised over $8,000 which will be donated evenly to the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life and the American Heart Association's Heartwalk events.
Teams participated in the afternoon event on a clear but blustery day at Blackstone Golf Course, in Mossy Head, Fla. The golf scramble included lunch for all 80 players and numerous door prizes generously donated by 21 sponsors.
Many CHELCO employees support the ACS and AHA through participation in events, personal donations and other fundraising activities throughout the year.
"CHELCO is proud to support causes which affect our community," said CHELCO Communications and Community Affairs Manager Rumi Nielson-Green. "Our employees are pleased to contribute what we can to fight these diseases and are grateful to all the sponsors whose generosity made this tournament possible."
CHELCO is a not-for-profit electric distribution cooperative servicing more than 56,000 accounts in Walton, Okaloosa, Holmes and Santa Rosa counties.
