Golf scramble to benefit Feed the Boro event


Editor's note: This article has been revised to reflect the following clarification, which will appear in Thursday's print edition. Cash prizes will be awarded for the winner of the 2014 Feed the Boro Golf Scramble, as well as for the longest drive and closest to the pin. Because of incomplete information supplied, the fact that a prize would be awarded to the winner was not included in a front-page article Wednesday.

Feed the Boro is an annual Thanksgiving tradition in Statesboro.

Now the event is growing.

This year, for the first time, the Feed the Boro Golf Scramble will take place Friday, Aug. 29, at Forest Heights Country Club.

Registration is open now and costs $100 per person or $400 per foursome. There are also sponsorships available at different donation levels.

The price gets you 18 holes of golf, a riding cart and lunch. Cash prizes will be given to the winner of the tournament, as well as for longest drive and closest to the pin. Registration and lunch begin at 11:30 a.m. Aug. 29, and tee-off is at 1 p.m.

Among the sponsors and those offering prizes are Gailey Trophy, Bulloch Academy, El Jalapeno, Automotive Paint Equipment, St. Andrews Builders, Minuteman Press, Marvin Deal Jr., TC Outdoors, Olive Garden and Benton Metal.

The golf scramble is to help continue a tradition of feeding the less fortunate and public service personnel on Thanksgiving Day, which was started more than 20 years ago by Jimmy Anthony.

Feed the Boro will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 26, and Thursday, Nov. 27. Wednesday is preparation day in Statesboro High School's kitchen, where the turkeys are cooked and desserts are sliced and packaged. On Thanksgiving Day, volunteers fan out across the area to deliver more than 2,000 meals to families in need.
