Swing for a Cause Golf Benefit at the Bridges Golf Course in Bay St. Louis

Many gathered in Bay St. Louis at the Bridges Golf Course at Hollywood Casino to tee-off for a great cause.

Hancock County Community Development Foundation presented by the Hancock Chamber of Commerce hosted their 18th annual Swing for the Cause Golf Classic Benefit.

Teams of four joined forces on the fairways to raise funds for over 20 community causes in the area. The golfing benefit allows organizations and local businesses to come together to make connections that will help build and grow Hancock County. Hancock County Chamber of Commerce VP Regan Kane said, “I think it is such an important event because it is one of the few events that is casual. So, people can relax and really have a lot of fun and not so much in a confined environment, just a good time, a good afternoon, and everybody looks forward to it.”

Community Development Foundation VP Wendy McDonald said, “It is important for there to be a place, you know when you are giving, that the money is going to be some oversight on how it gets spent and what it gets spent for. It has to meet the mission of the nonprofits that participate in the foundation.”

Prizes and gift baskets were also given away at the event.
