For over 15 years, the Reserve Club Women’s Golf Association has sponsored a charity golf event. This year, CanHope, a local non-profit organization, received a check for $20,000.
Over 120 golfers took part in the event which included golf, lunch, an online auction and a raffle. The tables were adorned with local floral centerpieces courtesy of Blossoms of Grace echoing the tournament theme: Colors of Hope.
“COVID has impacted our ability to fundraise,” said Brent Slack, president of CanHope. “These funds will help our efforts to continue to serve our low-income cancer patients in Aiken and surrounding communities. We are grateful for the support Reserve Club members give to our organization.
Our local business community once again generously responded to our requests for assistance by providing gifts and services for the auction and the raffle. Aiken’s Honda Cars offered 120 golfers the opportunity to win a new car for a hole-in-one.
Honda was joined by donations from Aiken Standard, Cold Creek Nurseries, Designer Builders, Floyd & Green, High Country Oil Company, Iron Gate Candles, Lionel Smith Ltd., Nandina Home and Design, Nania Aveda Salon, Neon Fig, Plum Pudding, Rose Hill, Southside Gallery and Design Center, Spago, Steeplechase, The Grocery (located in Charleston), The Sunshine Boys, The Very Vera Show, The Willcox, Three Monkeys, and Village Fitness.
“The support of these local businesses and sponsors made the day a complete success,” said Luce Mallak, President of Colors of Hope. “With the support of a talented team that included Louisa Visconti, Pat Zuppello, Donna Sohinki, Sara Foley, Lou Anne Brossman, Kris Coyle and Sue Amatangelo, as well as Reserve Club staff and many volunteers, everyone spent a wonderful day. golf and left with great memories. Truly a win-win situation for CanHope and everyone involved. »
