Towaliga Court Appointed Special Advocates hosted its inaugural Hero Golf Challenge fundraiser tournament May 22 at Hickory Hill Golf Club in Jackson, raising $6,000.

The winning team, sponsored by Bus Doctor in Thomaston, included Reggie Johnson, Holden Becham, Jason Johnson and Steven Hooks.

The tournament offered cash prizes and door prizes, including a 58-inch television, which was won by Ben Giovannetti, and a TaylorMade M6 driver, which was won by Wade Palmer.

Zaxby’s provided meals for the players and volunteers. Towaliga CASA raised a total of $6,000 through sponsors, players, donations and raffle tickets, with the money going toward helping to serve more CASA volunteers, who advocate on behalf of children involved in cases in the Towaliga Judicial Circuit Juvenile Court.

CASA volunteers go through training on issues affecting families in crisis, circuit officials said. Volunteers are assigned to children in foster care or family preservation cases. They visit the child once a month and gather information about the child’s well-being and their needs to make recommendations to the court and other service providers.

Leverett said a new volunteer training session will begin in August.
