By Pat Dowling|
The 6th Annual Shop with a Cop Charity Golf Tournament was held Dec. 9 on the Love Course at Barefoot Resort & Golf. The annual tournament is a collaboration between the city of North Myrtle Beach and Barefoot Resort & Golf. Proceeds from the event go toward the North Myrtle Beach Public Safety Departmentís Shop with a Cop program.
This year, the departmentís Shop with a Cop program focused on children in need at Riverside, Waterway and Ocean Drive Elementary Schools. Guidance counselors at the schools chose the children in need to receive the benefits of the program. The children were treated to a Dec. 10 lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings and accompanied by North Myrtle Beach Public Safety officers and volunteers went to Walmart to buy presents and necessities, such as winter coats, with their $100 Walmart gift cards.
The programís goal is to provide an unforgettable Christmas for 100 children in the community.
The 2016 tournament fee was $60 per person, which included green fees, cart, range balls, non-alcoholic beverages, breakfast, lunch and a $10,000 hole-in-one competition.
The department thanks all who played in the event for their continued support of the North Myrtle Beach Public Safety Departmentís Shop with a Cop program.
