Golf Tournament to Benefit Jail and Cville Nonprofit
Central Virginia golfers hit the course Thursday afternoon to benefit the Albemarle Charlottesville Regional Jail and a Charlottesville nonprofit.
Seventeen teams teed off at Lake Monticello Golf Club to support the jail and Abundant Life Ministries. In the past, the tournament supported Habitat for Humanity and the shelter for help in emergency.
"Whatever can be raised is well worth it. If nothing gets raised, it's still worth it because we're able to be out here on a golf course and enjoy the good weather," said the jail's Major Adam Rodriguez.
The proceeds for the jail will go toward the employee wellness fund.
Rodriguez says he expects the tournament to raise about $6,000 this year.
