Pick up your driver and prepare to tee off, it’s time for the MUST Ministries Golf Tournament on May 13 at Woodmont Golf and Country Club.

Cherokee County supporters of MUST Ministries are getting their own golf tournament to help the 10,000 county residents who seek help and hope from MUST Ministries each year, with more than 80 percent of them being children.

Woodmont Golf and Country Club, 3105 Gaddis Road, will host the single flight tournament May 13, with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. A silent auction in the clubhouse will also be held to maximize the donations to MUST.

“This is our first golf tournament designated for Cherokee donors and we are truly excited for the opportunity,” said Angie Bolton, special events manager for MUST Ministries. “We are also seeking silent auction items, including anything from a restaurant gift card to a weekend travel stay, nothing is too small, nor too large. The money raised will be used to help our neighbors in need, supplying them with food, shelter, clothing, employment training and much more.”

The Title, Eagle, Birdie and Par sponsorships include at least one foursome per sponsorship.

Sponsorship for contests and holes also are available.

The money raised will enable MUST to continue signature programs like Summer Lunch, which provided lunches last year to help serve the 12,314 Cherokee children who receive free or reduced-price lunches during the school year, but often go without in the summer. With the help of volunteers, MUST provides a nutritious lunch each weekday during the summer to thousands of children in seven counties. Since MUST can’t do it alone, the generosity of donors, volunteers and supporters make it happen every year.

If you can’t attend the May 13 tournament, make sure you sign up for the next MUST Ministries tournament on Sept. 9 at the Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw.

MUST Ministries seeks to address the basic needs of individuals, families and children with facilities in Cobb and Cherokee counties and programs in other counties as well.
