The Eastern Catawba Cooperative Christian Ministry, Inc. (ECCCM) invites you to participate in the 17th Annual ECCCM Benefit Golf Tournament on May 11th at Glen Oaks Golf Club in Maiden.
The event will begin at 11:30 am with a delicious BBQ lunch provided by the Methodist Men of First United Methodist Church in Conover. The Captain’s Choice tournament will begin with a shotgun start at 1 pm with two divisions: Church Division and Open Division.
Registration is $90 per player or $360 per team. Each player can purchase a mulligan with a maximum of four mulligans per team.
Sponsorships are offered at multiple levels with differing benefits. ECCCM greatly appreciates the support of all the sponsors as these generous donations help underwrite the costs of the tournament.
Proceeds from the tournament go toward furthering the charitable mission of ECCCM, a Catawba County United Way partner agency. Providing assistance with mortgage/rent payments, utility bills, car repairs, hunger prevention programs, and financial coaching, ECCCM has been providing “a hand up, not a hand out” to eastern Catawba County since 1969.
In 2016 ECCCM served 6,974 individuals with food and crisis assistance and distributed 1.56 million pounds of food.
