LUBBOCK, Texas — A 4-man-scramble tournament will benefit Toys for Tots in Lubbock November 10 at 8:00 a.m. (shotgun start) at Shadow Hills Golf Course. The cost is $150 per person or $600 for a team.
“Current active duty, reserve and National Guard members will be on the course providing refreshments,” an event poster said. They will also accept donations including cash or new unwrapped toys. The toys picked up in the tournament go to the annual Toys for Tots campaign.
