The Florence Elks Lodge #1020 recently held its fall golf tournament at Beaver Creek Golf Course in Florence, and the community will receive the benefits. Golf Committee Chairman Jeff Proctor and over a dozen volunteers signed up 57 golfers to participate. The winning team was the Lamar Civitan Club. The golf tournament enabled the Florence Elks Lodge to donate $2,000 to the local community. After learning of an immediate need, the Florence Elks donated $500 to the Marion County Sheriff’s Department K-9 unit in an effort to reduce the destruction that drug abuse and addiction cause to the local community. A donation of $500 was given to Lighthouse Ministries of the Pee Dee to support their Ramp Project and Working Mother’s Education and Support Program. Lastly, $1,000.00 was donated to the Elk’s State Project the SC Alzheimer’s Association, Elks working for those who cannot remember.
