Just like hunger affects so many people, so does a simple game of golf. Sometimes, it's not about the score at the end of the day, but it's about a better cause and making a difference. Last Friday was 17th annual High Plains Food Bank Tee'd Off at Hunger golf tournament put on by FirstBank Southwest, Amarillo National Bank, Budweiser and Zachary Engineering. All of the proceeds from the tournament were benefiting all of the Kids Cafe's throughout the panhandle.
While golf was one of the most enjoyable parts of the day, there was a lot more than just that. Different activities were available as well as prizes and lots of fun. One of the main ways money was raised was the "Cash for Green" holes where golfers could pay money to see if they would hit the green. Everyone was willing to give and excited about an opportunity to help out a community in need.
As the day was winding down to an end and golfers were finishing up, Amarillo National Bank grilled delicious steaks. Once everyone was gathered the winners were announced for the prizes and the winning team was named. Although, they won the golf tournament, the High Plains Food Bank staff took away the greatest prize of a giving spirit from the Panhandle. The Kids Cafe and the kids that benefit from the generous giving won the ultimate prize and will be able to feed many kids throughout the Texas Panhandle.
