We are excited to report that we sold all our golf cart raffle tickets for the 4th year in a row. We want to thank the many members who worked shifts to sell tickets, purchased tickets and supported our club.  A special thank you to Monica Powell, Communications Chair for the many emails sent out for our committee. Thanks to Lulu at Fat Harold’s Andy he staff at McMillan’s for allowing us to sell on their property. We also want to thank Mike Graham for always being willing to help us select a cart, letting us sell in front of his business and selling tickets for us.

What does it take to sell 3500 tickets?

  • Our team and volunteers sold tickets at 22 days of selling events. We sold at Graham’s, Fat Harold’s, Shag club events, Little River Crab Festival, and SOS.  Our volunteers sold tickets in freezing weather in February and triple digit heat index weather in summer.
  • We had 27 club members sell blocks of tickets for the golf cart raffle. 
  • We mailed tickets, delivered tickets, raffled cakes, and did whatever it took to reach our goal                                                                                                            

Congratulations to our 2021 golf cart winner Sandy Hutchins.  She purchased ticket #1818 at the Little River Crab Festival in May.  She lives in Laurinburg, NC and has a vacation home in Cherry Grove.  She was thrilled to win and promised to buy lots of tickets next year.

The Fall OD Shag Club Brunch was held September 19, 2021. What a great way to start a day!!! Our friendly, hardworking hospitality ladies greeted all with smiles as 179 people came through the door. Our Ways and Means committee and their helpers had multiple tables of well-chosen colorful items which resulted in lots of members carrying bags out the door. Charlie Glazer played some great dance music, and the OD Arcade did their usual with a really good breakfast and of course their happy juices. We had another successful 50/50 with a donation from the winner being made back to the club.

If you missed it, you missed a great time. This is such a super way to see your friends, dance and just have fun. Please join us next time. Thanks to all who were able to attend and special thanks to all who helped out our great club. Your help does not go unnoticed.

Until next time, be well and stay safe.

Under a beautiful sky and near perfect conditions, the 30th Annual SOS Fall Charity Golf Tournament was held at the Valley at Eastport Golf Club on September 18, 2021.  Golf Committee Co-Chairs Judy Caulder, Glenn Strange, Bob Miller and Karen Young led a team of more than 30 volunteers in reprising the Fall classic after its absence from the calendar last year.

Numerous sponsors and prize donors helped make the event an enjoyable one for the 108 golfers who participated.  In addition to the Tournament winners and winning raffle ticket holders, prizes were given to individual golfers who prevailed in the Closest to Center Line, Closest to Pin, Longest Drive and Putting contests.

In terms of both the enjoyment of the golfers and volunteers and the money raised for charities, the 2021 Tournament was a huge success that set a high standard for future years.
