Leo Broom (from left), Michelle Tackitt, Marjorie Broom, Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr., Sandra Tackitt, Sharon Moy, Tami Laughlin, Les Pruski, Courtney Cantu, and Margie Pruski all worked hard volunteering their time and efforts to make the annual Wilson County Sheriff’s Office Golf Tournament a success. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Sheriff Santa program, which provides meals and gifts to families at Christmas.
FLORESVILLE -- It was another great turnout Sunday, as nearly 100 golfers participated in the annual Wilson County Sheriff’s Office Golf Tournament to benefit the Sheriff Santa program here in Wilson County.
With a shotgun start at 1 p.m., teams of four raced out across the River Bend Golf Club in Floresville for charity, fun, fellowship, and a chance at some great prizes.
When the scores were finalized, the team of Michael Gutierrez, Randall Gutierrez, Marissa Zozaya, and Jonathan Johnson were alone at the top. Finishing second was the team of Jacob Scheel, Colby Baggs, Nathaniel Sanchez, and Jesse Gutierrez; and the team of Kenny Scheffler, Jeff Smolka, Travis Scheffler, and Doug Smolka finished third.
Tommy Charley and Denise Sadler were the winners of the “closest to the pin” competition, and Randall Gutierrez and Marissa Zozaya had the longest drives.
The annual golf tournament, along with a shooting match that is held each year, serve as the primary fund-raisers for the Sheriff Santa program, which provides holiday meals and presents to families in need each Christmas season. The program has grown over the years, and helping more families each year is a goal. The program benefited more than 400 families last year.
For more information, or to help with a donation to the Sheriff Santa program, call the sheriff’s office at 830-393-2535.
