The First State Community Bank Charity Golf Classic hit the one million dollar mark in contributions to nonprofit agencies in Laclede County. Bank President Steve Hite made the announcement today while presenting checks to the various agencies and organizations. Hite presented checks ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 to organizations that provide for children, the senior citizens, families, animals and the sick.
The Charity Golf Classic started back in 1998 as a fundraiser, and in 1999 gave all the funds raised to Boys and Girls Town. Since that time multiple organizations have received thousands of dollars to support their efforts to help the community.
