Photo Gallery: MLGW Golf Scramble for United Way brings record number of golfers together to raise record amount

“It’s the largest amount we’ve ever raised from the tournament, and it’s helping United Way,” said David Vick, Supervisor, Water Meter Services for MLGW.

Glen Eagle Golf Course in Millington hosted a record number of golfers – 140 – for the recent MLGW/United Way Golf Tournament late last month. Golfers teamed up to play their best shots in the four -man scramble contest.

The finish was extremely close, with the winning team posting an impressive score of 55, only one stroke ahead of the second-place team. United Way wishes to thank all of the MLGW players who braved playing in summer heat to raise $9,500 from player fees and sponsorships for United Way, especially David Staggs and his event team of MLGW volunteers who made the event happen.

“Everyone I spoke with really enjoyed the tournament. Most important, we came together as a group and raised money to help United Way’s work in Memphis and the Mid-South!” Staggs said.

First Flight First Place team: Richard Smith, Garage-NSC; Richard Boda, Contracted Svcs; Bubba Hinton and Scott Gresham with a team score of 55.
