Fraternity raises money for Scleroderma Foundation

The men of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity at William
Woods University held their fifth annual golf tournament Friday, raising $800
for the Scleroderma Foundation. It was a great performance by the top three
teams, with the final results coming down to the last few holes.
For the past five years the Pikes have held their
tournament at the Tanglewood Golf Course in Fulton as a fundraiser for the
fraternity, as well as to raise money for a charity. This year they chose to
donate the money raised to the Scleroderma Foundation in memory of Lyndsey
Ellis, a member of Alpha Chi Omega, who died last year.  Her brother, Ryan, is a Pike.
 
This year 17 teams of four entered the
tournament, making it a very competitive tournament. There were two divisions,
one for Pikes and alumni and the other for family, friends and faculty.
 
The Pike division was separated by a mere two
strokes with Chris Reinert’s team coming out on top with a score of 54. His
father and two other friends made up the rest of the team.
 
“For being a senior and competing in the
golf tournament for the first time, it could not have been a better
experience,” said Zach Hurst, a member of the second place team. “I had a great
time.”
 
Many nearby businesses and individuals helped
make the day a success by donating money and prizes. Overall the atmosphere was
great. It was a fun and competitive tournament whether you came out on top or
not.
