EP Legacy Cup Third Annual Golf Scramble
About 30 golfers took part
in a foursome golf scramble at Valleywood Golf Course on
Friday, September 20 as part of the third annual EP Legacy
Cup to raise funds to support community charities that focus
on children and education.
Although it’s the third
year for the event, this was the first year under the EP
name – EP for Empowering People. “We changed the name
because we wanted to branch out to a broader audience,” said
Rev. Jerry Boose, pastor of Second Baptist Church and the
event’s chief organizer.
After the scramble, the
golfers relaxed in the club’s dining room for a buffet lunch
and to receive the news of prizes. The three foursomes which
finished with the lowest scores shared gifts and winnings of
$500, $200 and $100.
The three main charities
benefiting from the funds this year were: Connecting Kids to
Meals, a local nonprofit that provides over 500,000 healthy
meals to at-risk kids annually; Swanton Schools Backpacks
for Buddies, a parent and teacher-led group that provides
weekend meals to hungry students at their schools and the
J.L. Boose Scholarship Fund which provides financial awards
to students who are pursuing post-high school education.
This year’s primary
sponsors were: Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority – the
Crystal Sponsor and the following Diamond Sponsors:
Neighborhood Health Association, Designetics, First Federal
Bank, CBD 4 Real, Hemp 4 Real and Taylor Automotive Family.
