The Stephenville Men’s Golf Association and the Optimist Club are teaming up once again to bring joy to local children and families this holiday season with a golf tournament and fundraiser, Toys “Fore” Kids, at Legends Country Club.
The four-person scramble starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10. Entry fee is one $25 unwrapped toy per person or a $25 donation. Cart rental is not included.
“This is our sixth year to organize the event,” said Jason Smith, president of the Stephenville Men’s Golf Association. “Last year’s tournament was cold but we still raised about $5,400 in toys and donations.”
All of the toys collected will be given to Toys for Kids of Erath County and distributed by the Stephenville Optimist Club.
“There is a lot of legwork that goes into organizing this event, and of course it’s a lot of fun,” Smith said. “But on the day of the tournament it’s nice to sit back and see all the people support it. We really do make a difference.”
The deadline to sign up for the tournament is Friday, Nov. 9.
Teams can register online at Toysforekids.com or by calling Legends Country Club.
