Dixie Electric Hosts Golf Tournament for the Glory House and three secret meal programs for children.
It was a beautiful, sunny day at the Laurel Country Club on Thursday, April 28, when Dixie Electric hosted its thirteenth annual charity golf tournament. The four-man scramble tournament featured morning and afternoon flights with a total of 40 teams participating.
The one-day tournament raised an estimated $12,000 to be divided equally among the Glory House and three local secret meal programs for children, organized by the Junior Auxiliary of Laurel, Junior Auxiliary of Wayne County, and Macedonia Church in Petal.
Dixie Electric is an electric cooperative, with concern for community being a principle that cooperatives seek to fulfill.
“I’m so appreciative to Dixie Electric’s vendors and local community members who support our charity golf tournament,” said Community Relations Coordinator Pollyanna Magee. “Their generosity and participation allow us to help with food insecurities in our communities.”
Closest-to-the-hole winners were Bill Mullins in the morning flight and Cory Williams in the afternoon flight. Participants were treated to lunch sponsored by Runnels Contracting, LLC, Bush Construction, and B-Line. Hole-in-one prizes were provided by Kim’s No Bull.
