Safe Harbor hosts ‘successful’ tournament

Safe Harbor Women’s Medical Clinic hosted its annual charity golf tournament on Saturday afternoon, which Safe Harbor Executive Director Jennifer Dobbs declared a success.

The trio of Will Pearce, Jones Free and Troy Harville won the tournament. Ray Hollingslead, Joe Crovato and Bill Newsome were second, while Steve Smitherman, Steve Spivey and Randy Moore took third. Harville was also recognized for having the day’s longest drive.

“We had a really great day,” Dobbs said. “All of our players seemed to have a good time.”

The charity golf tournament was thrown by Safe Harbor to raise money for its general fund.

Though the total amount hasn’t been completely calculated yet, Dobbs said this year’s tournament raised around $5,000 for the organization.

The funds collected Saturday will assist the clinic in providing free ultrasounds, pregnancy testing, counseling, parental education, baby items and supporting families facing unplanned pregnancies.

In addition to providing needed funding for the clinic, Saturday’s event provided the golfers with a beautiful, though hot day at the Valley Grande Golf Course.

“We really appreciate everyone who made Saturday’s tournament possible,” Dobbs said. “All of the players, sponsors and everyone else who supported us. It was a great day.”
