16th Annual United Way/Madison County Chamber Golf Classic Results Announced
The 16th Annual United Way/Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic, presented by Community Hospital Anderson, raised over $54,000 on July 14 at Anderson Country Club. 42 teams along with 35 sponsors and many volunteers helped to make the day a great success. Proceeds from the Golf Classic benefit local programs supported by Heart of Indiana United Way and the Madison County Chamber that create equitable opportunities and help individuals, families and businesses thrive.
These efforts include United Way’s THRIVE Network which provides personalized coaching, resources, and supports for those who are working yet financially struggling to make ends meet. It also supports United Way’s Read and Achieve grade-level reading programs focused on helping our community’s children to be successful in school and life and safety-net funding for food, shelter, utilities, childcare and more. Supported efforts by the Chamber include economic development, business networking and helping businesses connect to potential customers and resources in order to build a strong business community in Madison County.
At the Golf Classic, the Madison County Chamber and United Way also hosted the 9th Annual 50/50 Golf Ball Drop sponsored by Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing and Casino. The winner, from Carter Express, generously donated their $1500 in winnings back to the organizations to further support the event and the impact of their programs in the community.
There was a 3-way tie for first place for the first time in event history. To break the tie, the top 3 teams competed in a 100-yard closest-to-the-pin competition to determine the winner and final standings.
