Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor celebrates another successful “Golfin’ for Good Sam” tournament

Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor’s annual golf tournament  “Golfin’ for Good Sam” on May 4, 2024raised almost $18,000 for the Good Samaritan Program.

The event’s name, “Golfin’ for Good Sam,” is a reference to the tournament’s ongoing support of PMMA’s Good Samaritan Program which provides financial support for local Presbyterian Manor seniors who have, at no fault of their own, outlived their financial resources.

“This is my first year with the Golfin' For Good Sam tournament. I was so excited to be a part of this long running tradition,” said Gini Myers, Executive Director. “27 years of supporting our Good Samaritan Fund is not something to sneeze at. This tournament allows us to support seniors that currently reside in the Manor to continue to do so.”  

84 golfers participated in the four-person scramble tournament.  The winners in the two flights were:

Flight A 1st place: Ryan Williams, Andrew Iverson, Evan Myles, Zach Larson

Flight B 1st place:  Kelvin O’Daniel, Michelle O’Daniel, Deb Nittler, Randy Nittler

378 numbered golf balls were dropped as part of Karl and Dorothy Faidley Memorial Golf Ball Drop prior to tee off. David & Pam Messenger ball landed closest to the pin.

“I had a wonderful time meeting new people and how they fit into this wonderful community,” said Myers. “I do have to say, going up in the bucket was a bit scary, but so worth it. With great thanks to our committee members, I look forward to an even greater turnout next year.”

This year’s Golfin’ for Good Sam tournament also would not have been possible without an outpouring of community support. Thank you to all of the generous sponsors for making the event possible and for lending their support to area seniors in need:
