LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Golfers from all across Texoma were able to play the sport they love on Monday, while also supporting a good cause at the 8th annual Goodwill Charity Golf Tournament.

Golfers were able to compete for rewards as well, with cash prizes being offered to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, with one random team receiving a prize.

However, the real prize is paying it forward! Officials with Goodwill said the money raised during the golf tournament plays a critical role in funding other programs they host.

“We have amazing programs, and a couple of them that are directly supported through this tournament is right here in Lawton,” Goodwill’s Missy Beets said. “It’s an adult day service. We have one in Lawton and one in Chickasha, and we also have what’s called a Workforce Development Service that helps people go to work with disabilities.”

Golfers also got the chance to be cheered by people who are a part of some of the programs from Goodwill, which gave them a chance to see the benefit of their donation.
