Loudoun Golf & Country Club’s held its annual charity tournament Monday, raising $45,000 for Loudoun Friends of Mental Health and Loudoun Hunger Relief.
Each year, the golf club in Purcellville hosts a charity tournament and donates the greens fees and cart rental fees to an area charity. Last year, it raised almost $50,000 for Blue Ridge Hospice.
“We choose a different charity every year to support and this year we decided to choose two to support since last year’s event went so well,” said Whitney McCracken, who serves on Loudoun Golf & Country Club’s board and oversaw the tournament. “It really went great.”
Magellan Foundation was a major sponsor, and several local businesses donated gifts and other items that were auctioned off. The event sold out, with 128 golfers.
