AUGUSTA, Ga. - Two organizations coming together to hit a hole in one to "Help the Children'

Augusta branch of Toys for Tots and non-profit W.Watchman House are hosting a charity golf tournament and they are extending an invitation to the public to join them.

"It was 40,000 children that didn't have toys until toys for tots intervened" Promotions Director of Augusta, Toys for Tots, Lenzell Ponder said.

Just last year the Augusta Branch served more than 40,000 local children and gave away more than 90,000 toys, which is why this partnership is so important.

"They made a difference in what the purpose of this golf tournament is and that was to provide support to these two organizations to continue to provide support for their mission, which is provide support to the children." Co-Founder, W.Watchman House, Inc, Michael Austin said.

Like Toys for Tots, the mission of W.Watchman House is to help children and to date, they have helped thousands of at risk children in schools across the csra with backpacks and clothes. Both organizations need your help while fulfilling their vision.

"We would like anyone who likes to have fun and be apart of the process anybody who cares about the community anybody who cares about children, we want all of them to come out" Ponder said.

While hitting golf balls is part of the game, helping the community is the hole-in- one

"The organization needs your support first and foremost, second come out and enjoy the atmosphere, being around people and then enjoy the comradery that's going to come from it. who knows what kind of relationship you will develop out on the golf course." Austin said.

It's set to be a day of fun filled with a purpose.
