The Seventh Annual “Golf Fore the Arts” Golf Tournament sponsored by the Sampson Arts Council was held at Coharie Country Club in Clinton on June 10, 2016. A "Meet & Greet" reception was held at the Victor R. Small House on June 9th.

The Sampson Arts Council would like to thank our community for making this the most successful fundraiser ever! We were thrilled to have 27 teams including 108 golfers, and 185 business and individual sponsors! We cannot thank everyone enough for their support of the Arts in Sampson County! A very special thank you to our Eagle Sponsor, Smithfield. Many thanks to Birdie Sponsor Ribeyes of Clinton for donating the delicious food for our Meet and Greet reception on June 9th at the Victor R. Small House. Other major sponsors included Go Automotive, Matthews, International Minute Press, McDonald’s/Caison Enterprises, Hog Slat, US Foods, Waste Industries and Butterball. This event was a huge success because of the dedication and hard work of our golf committee, chaired by Debbie Roberts and Helen Kearns.

 According to Kara Donatelli, Director of the Arts Council, “Funds raised will provide two weeks of Summer Art Camp (for grades 1-6) and three Art Workshops for students (grades 7-12) in July for over 100 children and 30 art camp scholarships to select students. Funds raised also sustain ongoing operations of the Arts Council so we can continue to produce programs and events that advance the Arts and engage our county’s residents and visitors. With your generous support, we are able to provide Arts programming throughout the year such as Artist Receptions, Student Art Club, Adult Art Workshops and Sunday Happenings.”

The Sampson Arts Council was proud to have Eagle Scout, Noel Turlington, join the Golf Fore the Arts Golf Tournament again this year to provide a youth golf clinic. His project allowed 14 rising 4th and 5th grade students the opportunity to learn the basics of the game of golf, and hopefully spark the passion for them to enjoy the game in years to come. It is so important to expose children to another way to spend time outside getting exercise. This golf clinic introduced another fitness option. The event also let kids get to enjoy and learn some art in the process, and let them take home a few balls and clubs.

Congratulations to our winners!
