Arvest in North Central Arkansas along with Genuine Care Pharmacy, will host the 26th Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Saturday, Aug. 27at Big Creek Golf and Country Club in Mountain Home.
Proceeds from the annual tournament will benefit three area nonprofit organizations that were chosen from an application process earlier this year. The organizations that will benefit from the 2022 Charity Golf Tournament include Have a Heart Pet Shelter, Grandma’s House Children’s Advocacy Center and Hospice of the Ozarks.
Have a Heart Pet Shelter in Yellville houses homeless dogs and cats and works to find them a loving family who will adopt them. The organization also serves as the location for the Volunteer Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic that sterilized more than 900 animals in 2021. The shelter also worms and vaccinates animals in its care.
Grandma’s House Children’s Advocacy Center is a safe place for child abuse victims and their families. Grandma’s House currently serves seven counties in Arkansas including Boone, Baxter, Carroll, Madison, Marion, Newton and Searcy. Grandma’s house is a place where children, who are victims of abuse, and their families can find help and support while facing the challenges of abuse, the investigation, and the healing process which lies ahead.
Hospice of the Ozarks provides compassionate care during the end-of-life journey. Hospice of the Ozarks serves residents of Baxter and Marion counties in north central Arkansas and is the only not-for-profit, 501c3 hospice organization and subsidiary of Baxter Regional Medical Center in Mountain Home, Arkansas.
“The work the nonprofit organizations in our area accomplish, and the needs they meet, is nothing short of amazing,” said Scott Copeland president and CEO of Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas. “That’s the entire mission of this annual golf tournament – to take an active role in supporting different organizations each year, and we can’t thank our surrounding communities enough for their continued support for more than two decades.” To date, the charity golf tournament has contributed more than $222,000 to local nonprofit organizations.
The two-person scramble tournament begins with a shotgun start for all players at 8:30 a.m. Golfers will receive prizes for a hole-in-one as well as other prizes.
