onion creek raffle donors put dent in homlessness

March 11, 2021
Austin, Texas

Pete League, GHS member and former board member, and organizer of the Onion Creek Hickory Classic, reports that a generous supporter of hickory golf and the OCHC has donated a new set of Louisville Golf Precision model hickory shaft irons (mid-iron through niblick, a $1050 retail value), to be raffled off, with all proceeds to be turned over to Mobile Loaves & Fishes, the OCHC official charity.  See WWW.ML&F.ORG  Repeat:  these are new, never used; they came right from Louisville Golf. This is a marvelous way for supporters and players at the OCHC to support the official charity. Contact Pete League for information on the raffle.

In addition, another donor sent a brand new Louisville Golf version of the Bobby Jones Calamity Jane putter (a $175 retail value). So, what we have is the eight-club set ($1,050) plus the Calamity Jane putter ($175) for a total retail value of $1,225.

Onion Creek Hickory Classic

The Hickory Golf Association of Texas is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, as is Mobile Loaves & Fishes. Raffle tickets are not tax-deductible, but other contributions are tax-deductible.

The drawing will take place after the 2021 Masters Champion is declared on April 11, 2021 (or later if there is a weather delay).

Past auctions, raffles and other individual contributions associated with the Onion Creek Hickory Classic played a large role in ML&F’s recent purchase of a mobile home at Austin’s Community First Village. It now serves as the home of a formerly homeless couple. Community First Village has over 200 residents already and, when at full capacity, will house almost 600 persons, all living with a huge dose of dignity. Now, THAT’S an effective way to attack the homeless situation!
