Faith & Fellowship Fundraiser
by Ashley Stewart
On Monday, August 26, the Highlands United Methodist Church will host its third annual Golf Tournament at the Cullasaja Club. The tournament was established as a fundraiser for the creation of their new Faith and Fellowship Center.
Opened in October 2017, this beautiful facility has hosted several church and community events, including the weekly VFW breakfast meeting, a blood drive, and HUMC’s weekly 909 Bluegrass Worship Service. The Faith and Fellowship center is HUMC’s way of giving back to the community.
“Highlands is a very generous community and we are very thankful for that,” says Rev. Randy Lucas. “Our vision is for the community to benefit from it.”
The tournament sponsor once again this year is Halo Window and Door Company. Hammond and Mitzi Rauers are once again sponsoring the hole-in-one contest, featuring a 2018 Ford Ecosport as one of the prizes.
“We believe it’s going to be a great tournament again this year,” says Rev. Lucas, “We’re grateful to everyone for their support.”
Registration and practice for the tournament will begin at 11:00 A.M. The tournament is Captain’s Choice and will begin at noon. Mulligans and tee busters will be available for purchase at registration on the day of the tournament. Prizes will be awarded for Hole in One, Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, among others. Registration is $200 per person and $800 per team. The field is limited to the first 22 teams to register, so be sure to secure your spot early.
A box lunch will be provided by the Cullasaja Club during the tournament. A buffet dinner will be served immediately after.
“We are very appreciative of the Club for their hospitality,” says Rev. Lucas, “We’re grateful to the sponsors and golfers that participate in the tournament.”
If you’d like to sponsor the tournament, you can sponsor a hole for $100. Signs will be placed at each hole to recognize the sponsors. To sponsor a hole or register for the tournament, contact Keith Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
