FORT WALTON BEACH  — The 8th Annual Children in Crisis Charity Golf Classic is 11 a.m. March 14 at the Fort Walton Beach Golf Course.

Each golfer will be entered into the drawing for a chance to take the “$1 Million Shot” Challenge. Additional hole-in-one prizes, including a new car, will be offered.

The entry fee, including all amenities, is $100 per golfer. Golfers will have lunch prior to play, refreshments and food stops on the course and heavy hors d’oeuvres at the awards party immediately following play.

Individual trophies will be presented to the top three foursomes. In addition, each golfer will get a free logo golf shirt, and there will be a silent auction.

“We must raise the funds to sustain operations for the CIC Neighborhood," Ken Hair, CIC president and CEO, said. "Our annual golf tournament helps with that important challenge. Thanks to the support from our wonderful community, we’ve given a home to over 400 foster children.”

The tournament was established in 2007 to help raise sustainment funds to feed, clothe and provide a home to at-risk foster children.

Last year’s tournament raised $22,000 to help provide a home to Northwest Florida's abused, neglected and abandoned children. The winning team was David Henderson, Tracy Jernigan, Don Reese and Tommy Serigne.
