Golf fundraiser deadline Saturday

  • Follow Golf

Golfers participating in an annual fundraiser for an area adoption agency will 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 takes place 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 in the tournament supports the nonprofit, nondenominational Christian ministry, which provides adoption placement and follow-up counseling services to local women.

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