Nearly 100 golfers helped raise $2,400 in cash for the Yarmouth Food Pantry on Nov. 19, during the 17th Annual Turkey Shoot-Out and Food Pantry Drive at Blue Rock Golf Course in South Yarmouth.
Hundreds of non-perishable food items were also donated during the day by golfers and others who stopped by to help the cause.
Proceeds from the annual fundraiser go to the Yarmouth Food Pantry’s ongoing efforts to provide food for people in the Yarmouth area. The cash donation in combination with the donated food brought the total value to $3,000, all of which will be used to help those in need this holiday season.
“As inflation continues to chip away at the ability of Cape Cod residents to provide their families with the basic needs of food, shelter and warmth this season, the 2022 Turkey Shoot was more important than ever,” said Blue Rock Golf Course PGA Pro Jim Campbell.
In an amazing act of generosity, all members of the first-place team donated the four turkeys they won back to the Yarmouth Food Pantry as did the winners in all other categories. The winning team was made up of John Bakis, Jack Brooks, Pat Moore and Colin Roth.
“All of us at Blue Rock are honored to help our friends and neighbors in need this year,” said Campbell.
