Golf participants enjoyed spending time with BCH residents during the tournament.

The Women’s Golf Tournament was held on Monday, June 19 and consisted of 14 teams. The first place team was led by Peggy Rider. Children from BCH, Owasso assisted golfers by carrying their golf bags and providing beverages. Olive Garden catered lunch.

“The golf tournament is a great event for our campus. It helps us raise activity funds throughout the year for our cottages and summer program,” said BCH Owasso Administrator Scott Pallett. “It’s just a fun event for the whole campus. We have a lot of people participate and it really blesses us.”
