Tee Off for the Children

Kingston Plantation’s Annual Golf Challenge Scheduled for August 24th


MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – (July 19, 2005) – Most anyone can think of several good reasons to play an afternoon of golf. But one of the best is the opportunity to benefit the community’s children. The Kingston Plantation Golf Challenge at Arcadian Shores Golf Course on Aug. 24 at 1:30 p.m., will benefit the Horry County Children’s Shelter. Last year, the Golf Challenge raised $10,000 for the Shelter. This year, the goal is $15,000.

Golfers can sponsor a hole for $200 (two people per hole), or $400 for a team. The fee for the hole sponsor includes signage on the designated hole, two box lunches, unlimited soft drinks and water on the course, and a post tournament reception and cookout at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort. Each team receives a box lunch per person, raffle ticket for prizes and a post tournament reception and cookout at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort.

In addition, a separate raffle will be held for a seven-day Caribbean cruise. Tickets are $10, and the winner will be announced at the post reception at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort. For more information or to register, call Marie Kauffman, 843-497-1778, or send checks to Kingston Plantation c/o the Horry County Children’s Shelter to Kingston Plantation, 9800 Queensway Blvd., Myrtle Beach, SC., 29572.

The Horry County Shelter is a 28-bed facility that provides temporary safety and security for abused, neglected, or abandoned children, ages infant to 18. This is a critical need in the Myrtle Beach community, and the Shelter is supported solely by donations.
