The PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com World Amateur Handicap Championship has donated more than 1,000 polo shirts and pullovers to assist the Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the storm-ravaged Bahamas.
The apparel was donated through Head Knowles relief efforts and will be airlifted to the Bahamas. There were no Bahamians among the 3,200 players who competed in the 36th annual World Am, played late last month, but that was immaterial to an event that has a history of helping those in need.
“We live in an area that understands the dangers of a hurricane, and we want to do what we can to assist in the recovery efforts in the Bahamas,” said Scott Tomasello, the World Am’s tournament director. “We were fortunate to avoid the worst of the storm’s wrath, and our prayers go out to the people of the Bahamas whose lives have been changed forever.”
More information on how to donate to relief efforts is available here. In 2017, the World Am sent pallets of clothing to victims of Hurricane Harvey in the Houston, TX Metro area.
