Sharing God’s Love raised $20,963 through its recent annual Sharing God’s Love Benefit Golf Tournament.
Eighty-two golfers participated, and a total of sixty-seven sponsors provided the record amount of funds raised by the event. Fifty merchants contributed prizes. The Spur at Northwoods hosted the event and provided lunch for the players and volunteers. The golf outing is one of three fundraisers conducted each year.
Spring and fall yard sales also provide the needed finances to help sustain the charitable service.
