Tourney Raises More Than $13,000 to Benefit River Region and International Charities
Prattville, AL, October 29, 2010: The Prattville Rotary Club and Prattville-Millbrook Sunrise Rotary Club held their combined 17th annual charity golf tournament at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, Capitol Hill, Prattville.
This year's event was the largest in tournament history with 41 teams (more than 160 participants) golfing at morning and afternoon sessions on the Senator course. Participants enjoyed a beautifully overcast day with a consistent breeze that kept the temperature down while providing an added challenge to the famed Links course.
The Max Roundtable with Doug Amos and Josh Moon broadcasted live from the event at 12:00 noon amidst a full clubhouse enjoying a grand buffet lunch by Capitol Hill. Winners of both the morning and afternoon sessions were announced and door prizes were displayed on the clubhouse patio overlooking the Alabama River and downtown Montgomery.
Tournament co-chair, Lane Easterling, summed-up the entire day, "I couldn't ask for anything greater than this...the turnout, the timing, the entire day was awesome!"
Proceeds from the tournament will benefit Rotary service projects at the local, national and international levels. Funds raised at the 2009 tournament benefitted local organizations including: PASS, the Boy Scouts of America, Alabama Teen Challenge, the Public Safety Insurance Fund, Alabama Wildlife Federation, Miss Fountain City, Common Ground Montgomery, Prattville YMCA "Coach a Child Campaign," Leadership Autauga County, Prattville-Autauga Humane Society, Prattville-Autauga Character Coalition and the Baptist Health Care Foundation.
