The SCG Softball Club held its sixth annual golf outing March 29th at Granite Falls South. Known for hitting a softball, 144 Club Members and friends showed up to hit a much smaller ball for a great cause. For the third year, Soldier’s Best Friend was the designated beneficiary for the event. Soldier’s Best Friend is a local agency located in Peoria which supports our Veterans with PTSD and/or TBI (traumatic brain injuries) by matching each with a service dog to assist them with their special needs. All dogs in the program are “rescue dogs”, so one may say that the program is saving the life of the dog and its’ Veteran.
Club member and tournament director, Bob Topham presented Marty Park, Board Member for Soldier’s Best Friend, a check for $2,688, delivering added resources for this great program. One Veteran, Theresa, was also in attendance and was accompanied with her dog, Hera. Theresa answered many questions from club members following the presentation. It was a great time to provide a “THANK YOU” to Theresa for her service to our country.
A hats off to Realtors Char Wheeler for donating two gift baskets and Nancy Muslin for donating a gift basket and water and Realtor Tom Ranalls for running a donation raising event on Hole # 17 (over $810 was collected). Gift Baskets were given to Arlene Weslosky, Paul Becker and Gord Jones for all the help provided at the golf course over the many years we’ve played the tournament.

The SCG Softball Club has raised $231,763 since 2007 supporting many charitable organizations. Just over $64,000 has been raised for Veteran related services supporting those who gave so much and who may be in need today. The community of Sun City Grand should feel proud of the efforts of this club and so many other clubs who do so much for those in need.
