ETCHA raising funds for operational costs with golf tourney

Published 9:21 pm Friday, June 23, 2017

A tradition spanning over 10 years is right around the corner for the community.
Ron Marvel with the East Tennessee Christian Home & Academy (ETCHA) announced Friday the organization’s 13th annual golf tournament is scheduled to take place on Saturday, Aug. 19, at 1 p.m. at the Elizabethton Golf Course.
“Time is fast approaching for the 13th annual golf tournament sponsored by the friends of the East Tennessee Christian Home & Academy,” Marvel said in an email to the Elizabethton Star. “(The event) raises money to help with the operational expenses of the residential and educational programs provided to adolescent girls who can benefit from an enhancement of their life experience.”
The tournament will be a two-person select shot that will have a shotgun start. Marvel added the organization is inviting businesses and organizations to be a hole sponsor and for teams to be created to help with the event. The sponsorship cost for a hole is $300 and teams that provide a sponsorship can play for no additional cost. Other players for the sponsor will have to pay a $55 registration fee.
“We are excited to offer you this great experience of Christian fellowship while helping to provide residential and education programs for adolescent girls,” Marvel said. “We look forward to seeing you and identifying which church or community group can recruit the most and best golfers. The previous golf tournaments have gone a long way in helping to offset the differences between donations and expenses. We look forward to a continually success event in 2017.”
Additional information on sponsorship information can be gathered by calling (423) 542-4423.
ETCHA has continued to be a standard bearer within the community providing opportunities to area children and Marvel added the organization has appreciated the support from the community.
“We continue to be blessed by God in His provisions for this ministry and rejoice in seeing positive changes in the lives of the girls we serve,” Marvel added.
