The W James Samford, Jr. Foundation presented Youth for Christ’s 35th
Annual Golf Classic on Monday, Aug. 3, at the Auburn University Club. Sixty-eight local businesses and community sponsors raised more money for the ministry than ever before, despite the coronavirus challenges and restrictions.
Ninety-eight golfers played one round of golf each in two separate flights following the coronavirus social distancing guidelines.

This year’s Golf Classic marks a full year of leadership for Tabitha Vasilas, Executive Director of
the East Alabama Youth for Christ.
“East Alabama Youth For Christ is a faith-based, non-profit organization that offers mentoring
and outreach to youth ages 11-19,” Vasilas said. “The funds raised at this event will help us continue in that mission. Without the generosity and support of our community, our work would not be possible. We are excited about the success and turnout this year in spite of COVID-19 and its many challenges. We would like to thank all 68 sponsors, each golfer, and the 28
volunteers who helped us pull this event off.
“We would also like to thank Jackson Perspectives for the photography and videography. Lastly, our amazing Board of Directors, the AU Club, and the additional donors for joining us in our efforts to reach Youth for Christ.”
