Posted: Updated:


Denison, TX – The trees are budding, flowers are blooming, the sun is shining and it is this time of year when young men & women everywhere have their fancies turned to… golf?

That's right! Its perfect weather to enjoy a great round of 18 and pretend you are going for the green jacket!

Since you'll be out on the links anyway, why not do it for a great cause? On Saturday May 15th this year, The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club is hosting their annual benefit golf tourney at the Denison Country Club. All proceeds will help to subsidize low-income and at-risk youth for membership and participation in the club and all the great programs it provides for self-esteem and character building.

The competition will begin with a shotgun start at 9 am and finish with burgers, door prizes and gifts for all the participants.

The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club has been a fixture in youth sports in this community for over 3 decades, producing great athletes and members of the community such as Al Penn-White and the current Executive Director, Benny Jenkins as well as newer stars of the athletic arenas, TJ Taylor & DJ Jones of Yellow Jacket fame. Now providing award-winning curriculums like SMART Moves, to teach kids good decision making skills, and Triple Play to prevent childhood obesity, the club is looking to reach out to as many community area kids as possible.

To sign up or sponsor a hole please contact Benny Jenkins at 903-465-1383 or benny_jenkins@uss.salvationarmy.org or Russell Clapp at 903-267-0228.
