RecognizeGood Spotlight: Minister’s Cup

Today is the last day to register for the 13th annual Minister’s Cup golf tournament! Registration closes tomorrow, the 18th, so hop on over to the Samaritan Center’s website for the event, check out the details, and sign up a team if you haven’t already.  This is a really great event you won’t want to miss!

The event is to be held on October 22nd, at the Barton Creek Country Club’s Crenshaw Cliffside Course, and will begin at 11am. Funds raised during this event will be used to support the Samaritan Center for Counseling & Pastoral Care – The Samaritan Center is a nonprofit organization that provides professional counseling, integrative medicine, and community education to prevent and treat abuse, teach healthy life skills, and strengthen families.

This year’s tournament will honor Judge Jim Wallace and his wife, Martha. Along with golf, Barton Creek resorts opened up their facilities for players and non-players alike, exclusively for the Minister’s Cup. Guests can enjoy a putting contest on their miniature golf course, swimming at the pool, enjoy a day at the spa, or just come out for dinner after the play! Tina Bradley Mayers will even be hosting a golf clinic for ladies participating in the Woman’s Involvement activities. The Samaritan Center is also currently holding a silent auction, which will conclude on the day of the event, during the awards dinner.

Men and women, no matter the golf playing ability, are invited to play. Single players are welcome too! For more information, or if you are interested in registering, putting a team together, becoming a sponsor, or making a donation, please visit the Samaritan Center’s website for more information. Come join the fun!

The Minister’s Cup has been championed and organized by Don Ames for over 11 years, raising over $400,000 for the Samaritan Center. Don was recognized as our October 2010 Legend for his extraordinary work with the Samaritan Center and the annual Minister’s Cup golf tournament.
