Golfers participating in an annual fundraiser for a local adoption agency have the opportunity to play alongside a member of the two-time national championship Augusta State University golf team.

The event, Chip in ‘FORE’ Adoption, supports Covenant Care Services of Augusta and will be March 3 at Forest Hills Golf Club.

“By participating in the tournament I have the ability to help save lives and families that are in need, which is much more important than any championship a golfer could ever play in,” Augusta State golfer Carter Newman said in a statement.

Money raised from the tournament supports the non-profit, non-denominational Christian ministry, which provides adoption placement and follow-up counseling services to local women.

The tournament costs $100 per player. Hole sponsorships are $150. The registration deadline is Feb. 25.
