Golf tournament helps non-profit surpass last year’s mark

Each year, Safe Harbor, formerly known as Sav-A-Life, puts on a golf tournament at Valley Grande Golf Course, and this year was no different that years past: it was a success.

Jennifer Dobs, executive director for the non-profit, said this year’s fundraiser exceeded last year’s by $1,000 and raised an approximate total of $9,000. That is great news for Safe Harbor and the families it serves.

The non-profit is a “non-denominational Christian ministry serving those in Dallas County and the surrounding areas that are facing crisis pregnancy and are unsure of their options.”

Safe Harbor does not receive state or federal funding, so they depend on fundraisers and contributions to provide the services they offer, like counseling and ultrasounds to expectant mothers.

Every slot in the tournament was filled with a total of 67 players taking part in the tournament. It is great to see the community continuing to give back to Safe Harbor, including the tournament sponsors.

They provide and important service to people in Selma and Dallas County, and they depend on the community to give back.

We are glad to see Safe Harbor get the funding they need to continue helping.
