The Rotary Club of Lake Houston Area successfully hosted its Cinco de Mayo Golf Tournament (May 5) at the beautiful Tour 18 Golf Course in Humble. There were over 100 golfers participating with chances to win trophies and cash.
 
Activities started at 7 a.m. with Breakfast Tacos and goodie bags at registration and a shotgun start at 8 a.m. Golfers also competed for a chance to win $5,000 during the Putting Contest and $10,000 if they made a hole-in-one on the course.
 
Following play trophies were presented, a box lunch was provided and “Pick-A-Prize Raffle winners were announced. Raffle prizes included four Titan coolers with choice cuts of frozen meat, and a $300 Yeti cooler included with a wagon with filled assorted bottled goodies.
 
The Putting Contest finalist, Chris Butsch from the YMCA, took his one shot at the long put for the $5,000 prize money but sadly, his shot was wide. No one managed a hole-in-one to win the $10,000 but everyone had fun trying.
 
The weather co-operated and it was picture post card perfect day for golf at this beautiful and challenging golf course.

Funds raised during the golf tournament will be used to help local community charities including HAAM, Mission Northeast, Family-Time and local high school FFA projects. A portion of the funds will also be sent to Rotary International to help with projects providing fresh drinking water and to eradicate polio.
