Golf tournament Oct. 25 raising money to help Burnet family; prizes up for grabs

SPECIAL TO THE PICAYUNE

BURNET — The desire to help a Burnet County family has led to the formation of a fundraising committee and the opportunity for golfers to pitch in, too.

The Charlie Campbell Benefit Golf Tournament is 1 p.m. Oct. 25 at Delaware Springs Municipal Golf Course, 600 Delaware Springs Blvd.

Charlie Campbell was thrown from the hunter’s seat of an all-terrain vehicle in August while she was at a local Burnet County ranch. She is in an Austin rehabilitation facility to treat paralysis.

The tournament format is a four-person scramble, and the cost is $75 per player.

Robert and Kathy Griffith, Campbell’s parents and the longtime owners of Griffith Taxidermy in Burnet, have had an outpouring of support from friends who have established a fundraising committee. The members have been gathering numerous door prizes that golfers will have a chance at winning at the dinner and awards ceremony after the tournament.

Among the prizes are a 35-quart Yeti cooler, a doe hunt at the Lucky Penny Ranch, deer processing from Griffith Taxidermy, golf for four at both Lighthouse Country Club in Kingsland and Hidden Falls Country Club in Meadowlakes, a painting by Hill Country artist Mike Martin and a concealed handgun license class.

Deadline to sign up is 5 p.m. Oct. 23. Call the Delaware Springs pro shop at (512) 756-8741 to register.
