Children’s Advocacy Center Of Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit Reaches Fundraising Goal From Golf Tournament

Monday, September 27, 2021

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit held a golf tournament to raise money for their mental health program. CAC-LMJC could lose 10 percent of its budget next year because of federal budget cuts. The deficit could have resulted in significant cuts to the program, but the nonprofit hit its fundraising goal with the golf tournament, raising $26,138.27.  

The golf tournament had two flights, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The Lafayette High School golf team won first place in the morning flight and Covenant Transport won first place in the afternoon flight. The second-place winners were the Bank of Dade and the Bank of Lafayette. There was also a media and law enforcement competition, in which WRCB and the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Department took home first place.

In total, 32 teams played in the “Be Their Voice Golf Tournament.” The CAC-LMJC’s Executive Director, Anthony Dye says they plan to continue the fundraiser next year. “A huge thank you to our community partners, law enforcement agencies, our media outlets, our board of directors, and everyone else who made this day possible! We had a wonderful turnout at our first golf tournament. The funding from the tournament will help 70 plus children that we see weekly.”
