Thousands raised for charity at golf tourney

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT)-  Hundreds of people teed off at the Paragould Country Club Thursday morning.

The AMMC Foundation's 19th annual golf tournament took place. The duffers included several local officials and personalities who were all too happy to raise money for the charity on this beautiful day.

Director of the Foundation, Terry Austin, said the money raised goes to the foundation. "In years past, we've spent the money from the tournament on renovating our rooms to make them fully private.  Things like caring for senior citizens, providing new equipment at the hospital," Austin said.

They managed to raise $43,000 for the foundation this year.
