"Our nonprofits have been hit hard due to lack of normal fund raising and our Board decided to give ALL of our Golf Tournament proceeds back to the community at one time," stated Rotary President Max Caylor.
The $16,000 came from Rotary's Golf Tournament in August due to local businesses sponsorships and players.
"We greatly appreciate our sponsors and players for their support especially in a difficult year dealing with the virus," said Golf Tourney Chairperson Gina Pendley!
