We Care Community Services has been serving Rhea County for nearly four decades with a variety of services with a focus on giving individuals and families and hand up to a better tomorrow. One of the ways it strives to do this is through its two homeless facilities. There is one in Dayton, is a tiny house, and one in Spring City, a large facility able to house three families with children at a time and a manager’s unit. These facilities offer those in need and approved a safe place to stay for four to eight weeks while they save their money and can return to permanent stable housing.
We Care Community Services hosted its 6th annual golf tournament to benefit these programs. One hundred percent of all money raised during its one annual event goes directly to these programs. The tournament is spearheaded by general manager, Alton Steen. The We Care golf tournament committee included Joe Purser, board member; John Yost, board member; Neal Stultz, vice chair; and Laura Richardson, programs director.
This was the largest tournament in Rhea County history, with a total of 40 teams participating.
Zaxby’s hosted the meal that fed the participants. Nokian is a major supporter of We Care. David McCann, construction manager for Nokian Tyres and partners from Faithful & Gould member of SNC Lavalin Group and Clayco Construction were all in attendance all day providing gifts and conversation.
First place shared winners, each with a score of 50, were Community National Bank and Commercial Roofing Services. Third place winner was Hassler’s Vote for Dicey Brown. The two bonus winners were IAC Group and General Shale. Other special prizes were awarded to Tic Beard and Paul Riggs.
