Spalding County Sheriff's Office Tournament Raises Over $26,000 for Youth Outreach

GRIFFIN - On Friday October 4, 2019 the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office hosted the second annual Sheriff Darrell Dix Golf Tournament. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes, Spalding County JR. Deputy Program, Griffin Police Department/ Spalding County Sheriff’s Office Explorer Post 3507, and Spalding County Sheriff’s Office Santa Sheriff Program.

This year’s tournament was held at Sun City Peachtree and saw 36 teams with a total of 144 players. Rebecca Howell from last year’s season of “The Voice” performed the national anthem, and Pastor Tim Conort of Union Baptist Church led the participants in prayer before the 9:00am shotgun start.

According to Sheriff Darrell Dix, “Last year’s tournament netted $22,956.55 and our goal this year was to top that mark. With the help of our tournament sponsors, players, and SCSO employees, the 2019 tournament netted $26,200.00

“Even in the blazing heat, we had a lively group of players that wholeheartedly support our youth outreach, and the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office. We can’t thank them, our sponsors, tournament contributors, Sun City Peachtree Golf Club, and the whole Spalding County community enough for their continued support. When you read the list of these supporters and businesses and you see them out and about, or visit one of their businesses, please let them know how much they are appreciated. Their efforts better the lives of our local youth through the Jr. Deputy and Explorer Programs, and youth across the state through the Georgia Sheriff’s Youth Homes.”
