St. Mark A.M.E. Church’s Christians Explorers will hold its second annual golf tournament on Sept. 10 at the Scenic View Golf Course in Slinger.
The tournament format will be a four-person scramble. The event will also include lunch, dinner and a coupon for a free round of golf at Scenic View. Prizes will be awarded for low gross and low net scores. The cost of the tournament is $85 and $95 after Aug. 1.
Proceeds from the event will go to St. Mark’s Sister Church in the 16th Episcopal District of the AME Church.
On January 12, 2009, Haiti was rocked by one of the worst earthquakes in its history. According to geologists, the magnitude 7 earthquake that struck Haiti was the strongest earthquake to hit the region in more than two centuries.
The earthquake in Haiti totally destroyed four of the nine A.M.E. churches and the rebuilding cost for these four basic structures is estimated at $1.5 million.
As a result of the devastation and a very real need to help, the Christian Explorers Adult Sunday School Class made the decision to assist our Sister Church in the 16th Episcopal District of the AME Church that was destroyed as a result of the earthquake.
To date, we have donated a total of $4,050.00. Collecting $2,050.00 in 2010 and in January of 2011, we collected $2,000.00.
