Benton County Cancer Fund Golf Tournament Turns Into Big Success

The Benton County Cancer Golf Tournament fund raiser was held on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at the Shawnee Bend Golf Course in Warsaw. I would like to announce that this year has been the greatest success with OVER $17,250.00 and some change raised! There were 50 players this year and over 150 sponsors! It was a picture perfect September morning and high temps in the mid 80’s. WOW! We could not have asked for a better day! This year there were some added skill games such as a “Hole in One” prize, but no one made it except we had one hopeful, Danielle Stackhouse! According to Hole-in-one WITNESS Longtime past participant, was PRETTY CLOSE! Maybe next year Danielle! Fun, golf, food & a day off was had by all! The winners were as follows: 1st place team of with a Score of 24 was Corey Stackhouse, Danielle Stackhouse & Chris Carroll. (WAY TO GO....-2 girls and a boy!)  2nd place team with a Score of 57 was Jamie Henderson, JC Villines, Sharon Dood-Campbell & Rosie Wall!  3rd place team with a Score  of 58 was Stanley Drennon, Duane Brandsgaard, Jack Ingram & Larry Walthall  (Honorable mention also with a 58 was Kelly Stackhouse, Gary Batson, Darrell Zuchelli, & Ed Stewart--- there was a scorecard playoff) AND our NEXT TO LAST place team with a Score of 68 was Jamie Brandt, Carlton Marble, Rodger Marble & Dwight Roth. 
EVERY SINGLE TEAM DONATED THEIR WINNINGS BACK! We had some hole prizes as well: Longest Putt on #1 Corey Stackhouse (Men) & Sharon Dodd-Campbell (Women)   Closest to the Pin on #6 Jerry Cramer (Men) & Marsha Buckner (Women); Closest to the snaking Line on #8 was Jamie Henderson (Men) & Chris Carroll (Women)  & last but not least Most Accurate Drive on hole #9 was Dwight Roth & Flo Dwyer (Women). This is a great way to help the Benton County residents who need some financial help when they have cancer. There are so many stresses for those that have this terrible disease and the Benton county Cancer Fund is 100% Non-profit and helps those locally. Anyone that wishes to help the Fund can do so at any time throughout the year. There are many other fund raisers as well. For More information, contact
