The event will kick off with a shotgun start at 8 a.m., and will be followed by a meal and presentation of tournament and not your normal hole-prize winners with hole-prizes like shortest drive and most balls lost in the lake.  The cost of the golf tournament is $75 per person, or $300 per team, which includes a meal, green fees and cart rentals for those who don’t own a cart.

“The work the Henderson Community Foundation does is a really asset to the community of Henderson,” said Kelsey Bergen, Henderson Chamber Director.  “Not only do they provide an avenue for local donations supporting a variety of deserving organizations, but they are promoting the idea of students moving back to the communities of Henderson and Bradshaw later in life through their scholarship.”

The Henderson Community Foundation was established in December, 1990, following a comprehensive study of the community through the S.T.A.R.T (Strategic Training and Resources Targeting) Program.  As a result of this study, four key issues to facilitate economic development were identified.  One of these issues was the need to provide a vehicle to promote both charitable giving and local nonprofit organizations.  As a result the Henderson Community Foundation was created.
