The Exchange club of Missouri City’s annual Golfathon has been a fundraiser for Ft. Bend charities for almost 30 years. Golfers play a certain number of consecutive in one day and get sponsors to contribute money on a per-hole basis.
Early in the life of the club, many golfer’s participated, some playing well over 100 holes in a day. It was not usual to raise over $25,000. As the club membership aged, the number of players declined, but the event is still a significant fundraiser since many members make a donation even if they cannot play. An influx of new, younger members has revived interest in the event and this year we hope to return to previous fundraising levels.
