The 13th Annual Cove House Golf Tournament brought in big bucks Saturday at the Hills of Cove Golf Course to benefit the Cove House Emergency Homeless Shelter, and provided golfers with an opportunity to win prizes and show off their golf skills. Fred Bunnell, treasurer of the Cove House board, said about $5,500 was raised for the shelter thanks to the 24 participants and the 50 individuals and businesses that sponsored holes. “I think we did very well, considering the economy hasn’t come back out,” he said. “I’m very appreciative of the people who supported us.” Six teams competed in the four-person scramble, and Jeff Dewald, Kayleen Love, Rick Love and Mike Gough shot a 58 for the win. Two closest-to-the-pin prizes were also given out. Participants received lunch after playing, and then several donated items were raffled off, including a 50-inch plasma television, a love seat, a coffee table and golf clubs. “We had a lot of generosity shown in the raffle items,” Bunell said. He added the golf course staff was instrumental in carrying out the tournament. “I really appreciate everything they did for us,” he said. Benjamin Tindall, executive director of Cove House, said the tournament is one of the shelter’s three annual fundraisers. He said the organization will hold a first annual fundraising banquet in August, the same month the annual Cove House Classic bike tour is held. Tindall also thanked the players for their support. “We are so appreciative to everyone that came out for making it a very positive and successful event,” he said. “It was very encouraging, and people came out and had a lot of fun.” Contact Lauren Cabral at firstname.lastname@example.org or (254) 501-7476.
