The 11th Annual United Way/Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic, presented by Community Hospital Anderson, raised $41,500 on July 14 at Anderson Country Club. 37 teams along with 61 sponsors and over 40 volunteers helped to make the day a great success. Proceeds from the Golf Classic support several important local efforts by United Way and the Madison County Chamber for both individuals and businesses in our community.
These efforts include United Way’s countywide THRIVE Network that provides personalized coaching, resources and supports for those who are working yet financially struggling to make ends meet, free help to individuals in enrolling in healthcare, support of 2-1-1 and connection to available resources to those in need. Supported efforts by the Chamber include economic development, business networking and helping businesses connect to potential customers and resources in order to build a strong business community in Madison County.
