APPLE GROVE – For five years, the M&G chemical plant in Apple Grove has sponsored a charity golf tournament for Crosslight of Hope, and for five years, the ministry has benefited greatly from the event.
This year was no different as a total of $10,556 was given to the non-profit organization. This money will be used to help support operational costs including help for the holidays that clients will benefit from.
Crosslight Director Delyssa Huffman attended the tournament and gave a report on how money, which was contributed from past tournaments, has been used.
“Because of this event alone, we are able to have peace of mind and make it another year serving those in our area,” Huffman said. “We wouldn’t be able to be in business if it wasn’t for the donations and support our small community gives us.”
A total of 25 teams golfed at the Sugarwood Golf Club in Lavalette. Taking first place was Ohio Valley Bank which won four passes to Stonewall Golf Course, golf balls, and AMEX gift cards. Second place went to Blackie Brogran filling in for Pro-Seal which wasn’t able to attend the event. Team members won four passes to Canaan Valley Golf Course with golf balls, and AMEX gift cards. Tied for third place was Aerofab and M&G. Aerofab won four passes to Sugarwood Golf Course and golf balls, and the M&G players won tickets to a West Virginia Power Game.
Other winners included Rocky Sturgeon of M&G, closet to the pin; Marc Bryson of Steptoe and Johnson, longest putt, and Zach Goad of State Electric, longest drive. They all won a Garmin G6 GPS.
The event was catered by Buddy’s BBQ. After lunch, door prizes included Samsung tablets, Callaway wedges, golf bags, fishing poles and reels, Road Trip grills, Case knives, and drill/saw sets.
