On Saturday, golfers registered for the Charity Golf Tournament at 7 am at the Del Rio Golf Course. A total of 19 teams, consisting of 3 to 4 players, participated in this year’s tournament.
Every year the Elks Lodge of Brawley puts together the Golf Tournament for local golfers and sponsors to help local charities. This is the first year that the Elks lodge is doing the â€˜Charity Challenge.â€™ In the â€˜Charity Challengeâ€™ each Team gets to pick their charity of choice through Leading Knight Charities, and the winner of the Tournament can then decide where they want the charity dollars to go. Leading Knight Charities is a charity program that assists in other local charities.
â€œThis was first established to help the community with scholarships and to give at a local level, like to our Boys and Girls Club, to Brawley and Calipat,â€ Said Carlos Weir local restaurant owner of Las Chabelas, a participant and sponsor in the tournament.
