RotaryHarper Golf Tourney Raises 35K For Local Needs

HARRISONBURG – The 2009 version of the Harrisonburg Rotary Club-Wayne Harper Golf Classic raised more than $35,000 for charity, according to a final tally
of the event’s proceeds. The tournament was held April 17 at Lakeview Golf Club in Harrisonburg. Over its 17-year history, the tournament has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for a wide range of Central Valley nonprofits – from those that help needy families and kids, to groups that aid the homeless and disabled. Money Well Spent While this year’s proceeds fell short of the $45,000 raised last year – a reflection of the lean economic times that didn’t start in earnest until after last year’s tournament – the money will still go a long way to help this year’s beneficiaries. This year, the funds will go to Camp Still Meadows, Habitat for Humanity, Longs Chapel Preservation Society and the Roberta Webb Child Care Center, according to a release from the Rotary Club of Harrisonburg Foundation. History The tournament started in 1993 as the Wayne Harper Local Charities Golf Tournament.
Its namesake, who retired as Rockingham County Circuit Court clerk in 2007, started the event after hearing about an effort to raise money for the restoration of some old buildings in Port Republic.
