The Christian Counselling Centre (CCC) held its 3rd Annual Golf Tournament and Silent Auction on May 3 at Treasure Cay Golf Club.

Although eight golfers from Marsh Harbour and Treasure Cay communities participated in the event, Rachael Johnson, CCC secretary, said that there were not as many participants as they had hoped for.

Each year there are at least 15 golfers involved.

She added: “We also didn’t do very well in the auction; we actually still have the items and we are extending the auction online on our Facebook page for persons who weren’t able to attend.”

Nevertheless, Johnson said that the Centre is always accepting donations, so persons wanting to donate can still do so.

“The funds raised from our two fundraisers (the walk-a-thon and golf tournament) go directly to helping persons who cannot pay for the counselling service, and also our operating expenses,” she explained.

Johnson ended by thanking all business owners who sponsored this year’s event: Maxwell’s Supermarket, Abaco Groceries, John Bull, Abaco Gold, Abaco Inn, Cap’n Jack’s, The Oasis Restaurant, Brass & Leather and Albury’s Ferry.

To make your donation, contact the Christian Counselling Centre at: 367-6215.
