Mercy Ministries Golf Challenge Raises $47,000

The 2008 Mercy Ministries Nashville Golf Challenge was played under perfect conditions on Monday Oct. 13, at the Governor’s Club in Brentwood, TN. All of the sixteen teams started at noon and played 18 holes of golf. The teams purchased mulligan packages before the tournament and used them to help lower their scores. Each player was encouraged to get sponsorships for their round of golf and all of the money was donated to Mercy Ministries. The tournament raised $47,000. The top fundraisers were Matthew Rettick, Buster Wolfe Jr., Kevin Vozar, and Clay Eschrich. Prizes were awarded to the top fundraisers and the best scores.

There were 64 players in the tournament. Mercy Ministries had their own all female team. Mercy employee, Sarah Blair, participated in the tournament and said, “The Mercy golf tournament was a wonderful event to be a part of. The Governor’s Club was a great host, the weather was perfect and best of all, it was incredible to see all of the people who took a day to support the work of Mercy with their time and money.”

We would like to thank Tennessee Titan Kevin Mawae and his wife Tracy, Covenant Reliance Producers, HCA, Mercy Ministries’ volunteers, and Nelson Mazda for their help with this event! We would also like to thank the golf committee who helped organize the tournament. The members of the golf committee included Matthew Rettick, Kevin Vozar, Kelly Harris, David Houston, and Todd Sangster.
