Lake Toxaway, NC - You'd think that Nascar and golf would go together about much as peanut butter and ketchup...not so much. But when you take a past Truck Series Champion with a passion for giving back, look out...anything is possible!
Past Champoin of the Nascar Truck Series, Mike Skinner and his wife Angie hosted their 2016 Skinner Round-Up this year at the beautiful Mountain Falls Luxury Motorcoach Resort up in the western North Carolina mountains. The 2-day event raised over $220,000 for Hope for the Warriors - a non-profit supporting post 9/11 veterans and their families.
Mobile Golf Events had the privilege helping raise over $500 through the Mobile 19th Hole - Closest-to-the-Pin contest at the Round-Up event on Thursday. Then on Friday during the golf outing portion of the event, MGE founder and PGA Pro, Brett Gorney ran a "Play with the Pro" hole that raised an additional $1,100. Gorney stated, "What an honor it was to be a part of this event! Mike and Angie along with the Hope for the Warriors team were so much fun to work with! Handing them over $1,500 in donations to help support their cause was such a blessing! We can't wait for next year's event!"
