United Way of Northeast Georgia will host its first-ever virtual golf tournament this October. Organized by the nonprofit’s Oconee County Advisory Council, the month-long 2020 Virtual Golf Tournament offers golfers an opportunity to play any local 18-hole golf course while supporting a local nonprofit.

Players who register with a $20 donation to United Way of Northeast Georgia are eligible for prizes after sending in their scorecards. As an added bonus, golfers who are signed up for another local tournament can register for this our tournament and use the scores from the in-person golf outing for the United Way of Northeast Georgia Virtual Golf Tournament.

“Everyone knows that this year has its challenges. That’s why we believe this golf tournament is more important than ever. We want people to have a chance to enjoy the weather and time outside safely, while supporting an organization that is caring for those neighbors who are facing some of the biggest challenges in our region,” said Dan Elder, owner of Oconee Well Drillers, and Oconee County Advisory Council and former Board member of United Way of Northeast Georgia.

United Way of Northeast Georgia focuses on meeting the highest priority needs by mobilizing and motivating resources. The organization has been in the region since 1954, caring for its community members by providing resources, programs, and connections to move the needle and help its neighbors. The registration cost does not cover any golf fees but is a donation directly to United Way of Northeast Georgia, which supports local nonprofits making a difference in early childhood success, basic needs and workforce development.
