We’re pretty sure the fund-raising folks would tell you that when the economy sucks charitable giving sucks even worse. While there is probably some economic sense in that, it seems a bit ironic.

So, why not dig a little deeper, and try a little harder to make the world a better place during hard times when it’s difficult? Oh, and especially if it involves golf!

WestRash Charities started as a casual gathering of family and friends to play golf. It evolved from merely playing golf into playing golf to support our shared goal of helping provide the children of our community with a safe place in which to live, play, and grow.

They hold a annual golf event to benefit various groups. This year’s event is Saturday, April 25 at Bristow Manor Golf Club in Prince William Country. This year the tournament will benefit the American Cancer Society, as well as Prince Williams’ "Relay for Life," "Reach for Recovery," "Look Good…Feel Better" and "Road to Recovery" programs.

The tournament will be a 4-person Captains Choice scramble with two flights. Tee time is 8:30 a.m. and the cost is $120 per player.

There are also sponsorship opportunities still available. Last year the tournament raised $10,000 for the Prince William branch of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.

So, don’t be shy or Craig Littlepage will run you out of town.
