Thanks to all the big-hearted golfers who entered
the TGA Foundation’s raffle this year. Nearly 400 tickets were sold at various TGA-related events throughout the year for a chance to
win one of two VIP packages to Tapatio Springs Resort in Boerne.
The winners of the two prize packages, valued at over $2,800, were
announced on Friday, Nov. 5, following a random drawing.
The Grand Prize winner was Kim Pope of Montgomery, who bought her
ticket in August at the Bentwater Yacht & Country Club Play Day. Kim won a one-night
stay in the George Strait Suite and a round of golf for four on the award-winning
Tapatio Springs course.
Larry Corson of Dallas, who bought his raffle ticket in September during
Texas Senior Amateur registration, was the second winner. Larry won a two-night
stay in a Traditional Suite and a round of golf for two.
All proceeds from the raffle benefited the TGA Foundation,
the charitable arm of the Texas Golf Association. The Foundation, a 501(c) (3)
nonprofit organization, was established to make certain that golf in Texas
continues to grow and prosper. It achieves this mission through the financial
and administrative support of existing grass-roots junior golf development
programs, and in creating new avenues for deserving and underserved youth to
learn some of life’s most important lessons through their exposure to the game
Congratulations to Kim and Larry, and thanks again to all who
