Event proceeds to benefit the Community Impact Initiative
Come to the Eagle Zone Golf Improvement Center on Pelham Road in Greenville Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28 for a chance to win $1 million in Laurens Electric Cooperative’s 16th Annual Hole In One Shootout.
All proceeds from the event will benefit Laurens Electric’s new Community Impact Initiative, which provides grants to community members through their local Chambers of Commerce for public charitable purposes that enrich the quality of life of citizens in the communities the cooperative serves.
At the Shootout, 10 players will qualify each day by being closest to the pin to compete in the finals, where participants have a chance of winning one million dollars by shooting a hole-in-one. Qualifying times are Friday, April 27 from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The finals will follow on Saturday at 6 p.m.
Other prizes include $500 each day to golfers with shots closest to the pin, and during the finals, $1000 to the golfer closest to the pin, $500 for the second closest, and $250 to third.
Laurens Electric is dedicated to improving the quality of life of the citizens in the upstate and in the communities the cooperative serves. The Community Impact Initiative, new this year, provides grants of up to $2000 for individual projects chosen by Chambers of Commerce in Laurens, Mauldin, Simpsonville and Fountain Inn.
Suggested interest areas are community development, education, the environment, health or arts and culture.
Examples so far include $500 to the Fountain Inn Fire Department to provide emergency kits for local schools and $1,000 to Simpsonville Elementary School’s Leadership Development project.
Last year’s Million Dollar Hole In One Shootout earned $12,000 for charity. Every dollar spent at the hole-in-one event is a dollar that will go to improve the lives of your friends and neighbors; it’s a fantastic way to support the community and have a great time in the process.
