On Saturday, August 9th, The Ark put on its 22nd Annual “Swing Fore Hope” Golf Tournament and raised more than we ever have in funds for The Ark: over $12,000. The tournament, lasting from 8:30-2, started with a shotgun start and ended with lunch and a plethora of prizes for the golfers. Over 80 sponsors, from sodas and goodies to Tee Signs and Banners, were represented at the event, ensuring success for The Ark and our neighbors in need. We would like to extend a sincere thank you to all who were a part of this event, many of whom continue to sponsor it year after year. Please visit our webpage, http://www.athensark.org/golf/, to view pictures from Saturday’s tournament.
