Registration for 21st annual event is open.

MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas and South Central Missouri, along with Ultimate Auto Group, will host the 21st Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Saturday, Aug. 26 at Big Creek Golf and Country Club in Mountain Home. 

Proceeds from the annual tournament benefit up to three area nonprofit organizations that are chosen after an application process. The organizations that will benefit from the 2017 Charity Golf Tournament include Children’s Charity Ministry in Harrison, The Call of Marion County and The Call of Baxter County.  

Children’s Charity Ministry supports children and families in need through six different programs. The organization’s main objective is to provide food for children who are facing food insecurity, through the ministry’s backpack program that sends food home with children on the weekend. The Children’s Charity Ministry currently has backpack programs in six counties, feeding almost 600 children. The ministry also supports children with coats, clothes, hygiene products and other necessities.  

The CALL of Marion County and The CALL of Baxter County operate as two independent nonprofit organizations who share the same mission, “to educate, equip and encourage the Christian community to provide a future and a hope for children in foster care in Arkansas,” specifically in Marion and Baxter counties.  

“This annual tournament is a tradition in our region, and I believe its longevity can be attributed to the fact that our collective communities feel a sense of responsibility and pride in knowing that they are helping others,” said Tom Dame, president and CEO of Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas. “As we surpass the milestone of hosting for two decades, I look forward to another fun and meaningful event this year.”
