Annual Golf Scramble Tees Off for March of Dimes

A light breeze and sunny skies greeted golfers and volunteers at the eighteenth annual LAP-March of Dimes Charity Golf Scramble at Chariot Run Golf Club on Sunday, September 15.

At the blast of the 8am horn, 128 golfers on 32 teams took off in carts for the scramble-format, 18-hole event at Chariot Run located in Harrison County, Indiana. Volunteers from LAP and KTP were stationed at holes along the course for special contests including the ever-popular hole-in-one contest, the Straightest Drive, Closest to the Pin and Putting contests.

Participants were treated to a continental breakfast, a round of golf, lunch, a silent auction and raffles. Proceeds from the raffle and auction were included in the fundraising total.

“Our Golf Scramble was a great success that made a huge impact on our community,” said Labor Relations Supervisor Tami Hatfield. “We received a lot of positive feedback and we couldn’t be more proud of our friendly volunteers.”

The tournament raised a total of $39,500 for March of Dimes helping the historic organization in its mission to build brighter futures for moms and babies everywhere.
