Temperatures in the high 90s didn’t even make a dent in the fun enjoyed at the recent Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club Charity Golf Tournament held at Tulsa Country Club. Fifteen teams played 18 holes in a morning flight, were served lunch, then 15 more teams played in the afternoon flight. Some extra-tough teams endured the heat for both flights. Staff members from each club had chosen four kids to attend based on good behavior since Summer Day Camp had started. Children from the Salvation Army Sapulpa Boys & Girls Club greeted golfers in the morning before tee off. Kids from all the clubs learned how to putt before lunch, then settled down to a delicious meal. Jamar Giddings, director of the West Mabee Boys & Girls Club, gave the kids from his club etiquette tips as they chowed down on barbecue, salad and peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream for dessert.
Many thanks go to sponsors of the tournament including: Cox Communications, Cox Business, A.G. Equipment, People’s Bank, CMark Resources, Grizzard Communications, SpiritBank, Hampton Inns (Broken Arrow and Coweta), Motorola, Burggraf Services, Donohue Commercial Service, Jani-King, Solarc and MidFirst Bank.
