GOLF EVENT TO PAY MEMORIAL TRIBUTE TO LATE PASTOR DAVE HAMPSON
A golf event remembering the late Dr. David Hampson, who pastored Galloway United Methodist Church in Franklin for 15 years, is set later this summer at Lucky Hills Golf Course in Franklin.
The third annual Dave Hampson Memorial is set for 10 a.m. Saturday, August 24, at Lucky Hills, where Dr. Hampson played many rounds while serving as pastor at the Galloway church.
Up to 18 foursomes can enter the 18-hole event, which will feature a shotgun start, championship prize ($200 to the winning team), skill prizes (longest drive, longest putt, closest to the pin), mulligans, an auction, 50/50 drawing, snacks and a picnic after play.
The entry fee is $200 per foursome.
Teams can enter or learn more by contacting co-chairmen Chris Porter (814-437-7396 or ) or Dennis Baker (814-437-5066 or ).
The entry deadline is Wednesday, August 14.
Information about several levels of sponsorship for the benefit event also is available from the co-chairmen.
All proceeds will go to Reach One Touch One Ministries (ROTOM), an African mission organization that Dr. Hampson helped to create and that he served as a board member for several years before he died of cancer in August 2016. ROTOM is a non-profit, non-denominational mission organization that ministers to vulnerable older persons and their dependents in the East African nation of Uganda, where Dr. Hampson twice visited while serving the ROTOM ministry.
