Members of the Rotary Club of Dawson County and others feeling charitable showed up for a game of golf during the organization’s annual tournament.
Held on May 9 at Crystal Falls Golf Club in Dawsonville, the event is the yearly fundraiser for many causes within the community.
Rotary Member Will Wade said it’s “one of the largest community efforts … and it helps a whole cross section of Dawson County. I’m honored to be a part of it.”
Proceeds went to WEE Books, the arts council, Good Shepherds Clinic, St. Vincent de Paul, United Way and RIC Rack.
Wade said the event generally raises between $20,000 and $30,000 for charities.
The 19th annual tournament kicked off at noon, and several dozen players zoomed off in golf carts to hit the green.
The event included a box lunch, dinner, goody bag and prizes for first and second place gross and net, plus chances to win great prizes for holes-in-one, closest to the pin and longest drive.
