SALEM, Va. (WFXR) – During a weekend golf tournament, Hidden Valley Country Club helped to raise over $15,000 for Carilion Children’s Hospital.
This is the second year the event also held a fundraiser. Last year’s event netted $8,800 for Carilion Children’s Hospital.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Carilion Children’s Annual Golf Tournament had to be canceled, so Hidden Valley Country Club took the reigns of fundraising to help support the local children’s hospital through donations and raffles during the weekend.
Miss Virginia, Dot Kelly also made an appearance, thanking everyone for their support to the hospital.
The sold-out 61st Annual Men’s Member-Guest tournament hosted 60 teams in a different capacity due to the pandemic. Most of the dining and activities took place outside on the course to keep golfers safe and to stay within the limits of the required safety guidelines.
“We were thrilled in 2019 to partner with Carilion Children’s and this year we are delighted to top last year’s total. We are very proud to continue to be the only country club in the Roanoke Valley with a charitable tie-in as part of our Men’s Member-Guest. We continue to feel humbled that we are playing a small part in helping fund the treatment of seriously-ill children right here in our region.”Ken Crowder, General Manager of Hidden Valley Country Club
Hidden Valley will present the check to Carilion Children’s Hospital at a later date.
