Presented by Cantech Industries, the Dawn of Hope Golf Classic fundraiser, held August 15, 2016 at the Johnson City Country Club, raised more than $25,000 for the Dawn of Hope Developmental, Residential, Vocational and Health Service Programs. A beautiful
day with a bit of everything; sunshine, an afternoon rain sprinkle, a cool breeze and good times with new & old friends! Dawn of Hope Service Recipients Ricky and Becky greeted players as they checked-in and then cheered them on as they headed for the course. Both the 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. tournament tee-times were kicked off by ceremonial shots made by service recipients Bud & Ralph.
Players enjoyed a delicious breakfast and lunch, compliments of Chick-Fil-a of Elizabethton and Outback Steakhouse of Johnson City, respectively. Throughout the day, golfers stopped by the Honey Hot Dogs’ stand to sample their signature dogs, a traditional all-time favorite for tournament participants. Players and volunteers enjoyed complimentary beverages provided by Cherokee Distributing Company and Pepsi Bottling Group.
A heartfelt THANK YOU goes out Cantech Industries and the more than 72 tournament Sponsors, 96 players and 50 volunteers who helped to make this such a successful event! Dawn of Hope is truly blessed and grateful that these valued friends and businesses chose to partner with us in this very
