U-Turn for Christ to hold benefit golf tournament

This coming Monday, Columbus Day, Pahrump’s U-Turn For Christ hosts its third annual golf tournament fundraiser at the Mountain Falls Golf Course.

This event raises money to help meet the operating expenses of running a full-time men’s ranch for men seeking Christ-based healing and new life from their addictions to drugs or alcohol.

U-Turn’s end goal is to change lives, restore families and strengthen communities. Local Pahrump churches also help with costs of running the U-Turn ranch.

This Columbus Day, come out and enjoy 18 holes of golf with your golfing friends, and help men discover forgiveness and healing from their addictions.

The event costs $100 per person or $350 for four and includes the 18 holes of golf, a raffle ticket to win one of many local business-sponsored prizes, and lunch afterward.

Contact Gary Bennett at 702-539-9685 or Isaac Shock at 775-513-0525 for more information. Registration starts at 8 a.m., golfing starts at 9 a.m.
