On April 30th over 200 golfers hit the greens for a great cause at the Fayette Cares charity golf tournament sponsored by Ring Container Technologies at Fair Oaks Golf Club in Oakland, TN.
“My kids and I will never be able to thank you enough for the services you provide,” read the note from a Fayette Cares client who received hot meals, warm beds, and safety for her family. The need for emergency shelter, food, rent/utility aid, and domestic violence intervention has spiked dramatically due to the pandemic. But help has been there for an annual average of 1,400 people because of community support and caring. Tournament support from golfers, sponsors, donors, and volunteers allowed Fayette Cares to raise an estimated $26,500 to fund vital aid for neighbors in need.
The tournament was full of exciting golf experiences and prizes. Putting contests winners walked away with golf pens made from trees removed from Augusta National where the Masters is played, and 50” flat screen TVs thanks to contests sponsors Longtown Gin & Warehouse and Schrader Orthopedic & Stem Cell Treatment Center. Golfers interacted with World Long Drive Champ Heather Manfredda whose jaw-dropping drives sent the ball sailing 400+ yards. Guaranty Bank’s team earned the top award and their names on a perpetual trophy to be displayed for years to come at Fair Oaks Golf Club.
Caring event sponsors included: Title Sponsor Ring Container Technologies, Door Prize Sponsor State Farm Insurance, Bronze Sponsors Absolute Comfort Heating and Air Conditioning LLC, Fayette Janitorial & Industrial, and Guaranty Bank, Hole-in-One Sponsor Homer Skelton Ford, Super Hole Sponsor Edward Jones – Amanda White, and Thrive Hearing & Tinnitus Solutions, Beverage Cart Sponsor St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church, Putting Contest Sponsors Longtown Gin & Warehouse and Schrader Orthopedic & Stem Cell Treatment Center, Venue Host Fair Oaks Golf Club, Food & Beverage Sponsors Chick-fil-A, Baby Jack’s BBQ, Olive Garden, Michelob Ultra, Hill Top Wine & Spirits, and FirstBank, and Event Sponsors Fogelman Properties, David Kelley Jewelers, The Fayette Falcon, TriState Printing, and others.
