Wanted: avid golfers and sponsors interested in improving lives in Denton County to join the fun on Monday, June 18th for the 28th Annual People Helping People Golf Tournament presented by local auto dealerships to benefit United Way of Denton County (UWDC).
One of only two outside events held at the members-only Denton Country Club in Argyle, People Helping People brings 120 golfers to the course for the four-person scramble.
Eight dealerships are presenting the tournament, the longest running charity golf event in Denton County, including American Eagle Harley Davidson, Bill Utter Ford, Classic Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Mazda, Honda of Denton, Huffines, James Wood, Toyota of Denton, and new partner Gunn Nissan.
“This event has become a tradition,” said tournament co-chair Carl Anderson of Bill Utter Ford. “The collaboration between the dealers is what makes this thing tick every year.”
Anderson, who was the 1991 United Way of Denton County Campaign Chair, helped start the tournament that year. He approached representatives from the former First State Bank of Texas to create the event to help neighbors in need in Denton County.
United Way of Denton County has been the beneficiary since inception with more than $600,000 in proceeds received.
This year’s afternoon festivities include a speed hole, putting contest, AirCannon, door prizes and giveaways, and the 19th Hole Dinner & Awards Celebration featuring Metzler’s barbecue.
In addition to golf foursomes, sponsorships are also available. More information including registration and sponsorship packages is available at www.unitedwaydenton.org/golf or by calling Emily Reagan at 940-566-5851 ext. 107.
