Newhope Charities held its 15th annual golf outing today at Pebble Creek Golf Club in Lexington.

Twenty-nine four-member teams paid $340 each to play in the 18-hole scramble, to help Newhope Charities raise about $7500.

Richland Newhope Community Relations Director Jane Imbody says the money benefits individuals with developmental disabilities in various ways.

The golf outing includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner; a goody bag, raffle prizes, a 60/40 drawing, a putting contest, and two new chances to win prizes on the links this year.

Imbody says there was a "closest to the line" contest on one hole, and a tarp was placed over the hole on another green.  If any golfer bounces his ball onto the tarp, he or she would win a $15 gift certificate for the Element of Art gallery.   

Seventy businesses sponsor the Newhope Charities golf outing, providing food and prizes, and contributing to the fund-raiser.
