Woodside golf benefit set for Sunday

  • Posted: Thursday, November 28, 2013 11:15 p.m.

The Woodside Plantation Country Club will present the 2013 Candy Cane Charity Classic golf tournament on Sunday.

Registration will begin at 10:30 a.m., with lunch served at 11 a.m. The shotgun 18-hole event will get underway at noon.

The scramble format will take place on the Bob Cupp-designed golf course. Flights will be based on field entries.

All proceeds will go to three programs, including Area Churches Together Serving, also known as ACTS; the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Augie’s Quest; and the Employee Partners Care Foundation of ClubCorp, the firm that owns Woodside and other clubs. The foundation assists employees throughout the company needing assistance during times of crisis.

Activities following the golf event include dinner and live and silent auctions. The items auctioned off will include a one-year full membership at Woodside, as well as rounds of golf and overnight stays at various ClubCorp golf clubs.

To sign up for the tournament, call James Samorian, the membership director, or Chris Bates, the golf director, at 803-649-3383.

Sponsor options include corporate opportunities from $250 to $2,000. Individual entries are $50 for members and $75 for non-members.

ACTS provides temporary and emergency aid to families in need – among them food, overdue utility bill assistance, clothing, prescriptions and heaters or fans.

Augie’s Quest is named for a long-time businessman, Augie Nieto. The website www.augiesquest.org describes how in 2005 Nieto was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

He and his wife Lynne co-chair the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s ALS division.
