The gift was announced recently at the Withrow Springs Park in Huntsville. Matt Smith, Earlene England and Kelli Gilmer of Arvest Bank were on hand to present the check to Eric Judy.

Madison County Youth Baseball is dedicated to supporting the youth of Madison County by teaching area youth sportsmanship and teamwork.

Arvest, Ultimate Auto Group Announce Charities to Benefit From Golf Tourney

Category: Arvest Community News

Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas and South Central Missouri, along with Ultimate Auto Group, will host the 22nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Saturday, Aug. 25 at Big Creek Golf and Country Club in Mountain Home.

Proceeds from the annual tournament benefit up to three area nonprofit organizations that are chosen after an application process. The organizations that will benefit from the 2018 Charity Golf Tournament include Have a Heart Pet Shelter, North Arkansas Adoption Coalition and the West Plains, Missouri Sunrise Rotary Club’s backpack program.

Have a Heart Pet Shelter in Yellville houses homeless dogs and cats and works to find them a loving family who will adopt them. The organization also serves as the location for the Volunteer Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic that sterilized more than 800 animals in 2017. The shelter also worms and vaccinates animals in its care.

The North Central Arkansas Adoption Clinic supports children in North Central Arkansas who are victims of abuse or neglect, are in the custody of the state Department of Human Services and are living in foster homes waiting to be adopted. The clinic works with other foster care organizations to raise awareness of the needs of children who are in foster care and to try to increase the number of parents willing to adopt children in foster care.

The West Plains Rotary Club Backpack Program sends home nutritious food in backpacks with students in grades K-5 in the community who face food insecurity at home on weekends. In the spring of 2018, the backpack program sends as many as 125 backpacks of food home every week.

“The work the nonprofit organizations in our area accomplish, and the needs they meet, is nothing short of amazing, but we can’t assume it’s not a struggle to get the job done at times,” said Tom Dame, president and CEO of Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas. “That’s the entire mission of this annual golf tournament - to take an active role in supporting different organizations each year, and we can’t thank our surrounding communities enough for their continued support for more than two decades.”  To date, the charity golf tournament has contributed more than $187,000 to local nonprofit organizations.

The tournament begins with a shotgun start for all players at 8:30 a.m.  Golfers will receive prizes for a hole-in-one as well as other prizes. For information on sponsorships or to register a team, contact Tiffany Watkins with Arvest Bank at or by calling 870-449-7164.
