North Augusta 2000 will hold its 11th annual North Augusta Classic Golf Tournament on Monday, Nov. 4.
The tournament, which is scheduled for a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start, should feature more than 100 golfers, according to Mary Anne Bigger, administrative assistant for North Augusta 2000. The funds raised by the tournament will benefit local charities.
“This tournament started out as a way to raise some funds for local charities,” Bigger said. “We give to a number of charities each year, normally seven to 10 different ones.”
In the past, the tournament has given funds to the North Augusta High School golf team, the American Legion, the RECing Crew, Community Ministry of North Augusta – or CMONA – Friends of the Nancy Carson Library, Leadership North Augusta and the North Augusta High School Yellow Jacket club, among others. Some of the funds also go back to North Augusta 2000, to help in running the organization
Normally, the North Augusta Classic Golf Tournament brings in “close to $20,000,” according to Bigger.
“The amount we are able to raise varies from year to year,” she said. “We’re encouraged that this year we can raise even more.”
The North Augusta 2000 golf committee will meet before the tournament to decide which charities will get funding this year.
