Golf event to benefit adoption/foster care program


Special to The Sun

EDMOND — Lilyfield Christian Adoption and Foster Care will present the Annual Roofer’s Golf Classic Golf Tournament Oct. 3.

The event will be at Edmond’s Coffee Creek Golf Course. It will help raise funds to support adoption and foster care programs.

“Our agency continues to grow and serve more children and families,” said executive director Holly Towers. “This benefit golf tournament is a great way to help make a difference in the life of a child in need. We believe that every child deserves a family and we are committed to preparing and supporting Oklahoma families who open their homes and hearts to children through adoption and foster care.”

Participants will have a chance to bid on items during the Silent Auction portion of the event as well as purchase tickets to participate in a Putting Contest. Registration, lunch and the silent auction begin at 11:30 a.m. The shotgun start is at 1:30 p.m.

“People often wonder how they can be involved in making a difference in the lives of children in foster care,” Towers said. “Through this event, people can partner with our organization to make a difference for some of these children, as well as babies in need of adoptive homes.”

The format consists of a four-person scramble and the fee is $130 per player. Lilyfield is still accepting corporate sponsors and donations for the event as well. Interested individuals or groups are encouraged to call the agency at 216-5240 or send an email to aricketts@lilyfield.org. For more information, visit llilyfield.org/Golf.
