CONTRIBUTED BY EAST ALABAMA YOUTH FOR CHRIST
The Samford-Cannon Foundation presented East Alabama Youth for Christ’s 37th annual Golf Classic on Monday, Oct. 17, at Auburn University Club.
Numerous local businesses, restaurants, donors and YFC supporters in the community contributed to the success of the ministry fundraiser to further the Youth for Christ ministry efforts.
The lucky winner of the ball drop contest was Jerry Schwarzauer. His golf ball landed closest to the target when dropped from a helicopter. The ball drop was sponsored by Byerly and Associates, CPA. Lunch for all involved was sponsored by Chuck’s Bar-B-Que. All team prizes and door prizes for the golfers were donated from many generous businesses around the area.
The Youth for Christ team was pleased to have another great turnout for the annual event.
“We are so grateful for the many donors, golfers, volunteers and supporters of this year’s Golf Classic,” said YFC Executive Director Tabitha Vasilas. “The proceeds from this event will go towards further enabling us to reach more youth for Christ across East Alabama.
“As the executive director, my heart rejoices over the many kind and generous people the Lord sends to help us fulfill His mission of advancing the gospel. Jesus is the hope and light of the world. Because of that reality, we will continue to let his light illuminate brightly from within EAYFC. That continues to be possible because of our generous partners.”
