On Aug. 20, Meg’s House’s first golf tournament was lights out.

Enviva was the lead sponsor for the moonlit, par-3 golf tournament that teed off at 7:30 p.m. at the Links at Stoney Point.

The fundraising event for Meg’s House, which strives to reduce the impact of domestic violence and chronic homelessness in Greenwood, was both unique and successful.

It attracted more than 50 golfers, a large smattering of local sponsors, and raised over $16,000. Lead sponsors include: Enviva, Ascend, Countybank, Davis & Floyd, Manley Garvin, Self Regional Healthcare, United Community Bank, Lakelands Overhead Door, South State Bank, and Phil & Linda Zigos, to name a few.

Phil Zigos, Board Chair for Meg’s House said “Friday’s first golf tournament was a huge success and we couldn’t have done it without all of the volunteers and local partners that dedicated their time and money to this event. We look forward to hosting this golf tournament again next year.”
