Dadeville Kiwanis is calling this year’s annual golf tournament fundraiser a success as it raised about $6,000 to support area schools.
Tony Johnson, co-captain of the Dadeville Kiwanis golf tournament said about 40 golfers turned out for Monday’s tournament at Stillwaters Golf and Country Club.
“We had a great turnout, good weather, and I just want to say a big thank you to all of the people who participated. It was a good fundraiser for the club,” Johnson said. “We’ll be spending the money we raised on youth projects in the community.”
Johnson estimates that about $6,000 was raised from tournament, and Kiwanis is still collecting funds from business sponsors.
Peggy Bullard, co-captain of the tournament, said the funds will go to support area schools and youth projects such as Dadeville High School’s Key Club.
“It was fabulous – just wonderful. It was everything we wanted it to be. We had enough teams, we got plenty of sponsors, and it was just everything we wanted,” Bullard said. “We use these funds every year to give scholarships to the graduating seniors, including the valedictorian and salutatorian of Dadeville High School.”
Bullard added that she and Johnson would like to thank those who helped make the tournament a big success.
“I would like to thank every player, every sponsor and everyone at Stillwaters for their help in running this tournament,” Bullard said. “I would also like to thank all of the Kiwanis members who helped out.”
