A golf tournament kicked off the Mount Hope Jubilee today and it was all for a good cause.
The tournament was to honor Tom Stafford as well as raise funds for Mountain of Hope, an organization that financially helps kids in Fayette and Raleigh county get a better education. This is the organization's first effort to raise funds and the biggest event they have held. The afternoon included a round of golf as well as an awards banquet and silent auction. Mountain of Hope is hoping to raise a good chunk of change.
"A lot of sales going on today. We have shirts, we have golf balls, we're giving away a real nice club today in one of our dinners this afternoon. I'd like to see if we can get maybe four or five thousand dollars total from this, thats just something we can pass on" Said Jerry Adams.
Mountain of Hope plans on holding more fundraising events in the near future.
