Another charity class in the books, more people to help

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Another year for the Minden Charity Classic golf tournament is in the books. The largest fundraiser for The Minden Foundation, boasted 120 teams in a two-day, two-man scramble.

Although funds have not been totaled yet, Minden Foundation board chairman Andy Pendergrass expects the numbers to be good.

“It’s not a record year, but it will be a very good one,” Pendergrass said.

The goal of this nonprofit organization is to maintain a fund to provide charitable assistance, within the Minden area, primarily for those needs not specifically met by other charities or organizations.  Some examples would be assisting a family that has suffered a house fire, a flood or a family stricken with a devastating illness that creates financial hardship.

Monies are distributed by application only. The organization does not advertise, but rather seeks input from ministers, principals and social workers regarding families in need.  Decisions regarding disbursements are made by a board of no less than five persons. Visit the Minden Foundation website for the application.
