DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The 33rd Annual Home Oil Charity Golf Tournament teed off at Highland Oaks on Friday morning.

The event raises money for the Wiregrass United Way.

Fifty four person teams hit the links to participate. So many people wanted to play this year that people had to be turned away.

There were even golfers from out of state here in the Circle City to golf.

With 37 organizations across six counties to sponsor, Wiregrass United Way CEO Walter Hill says this event makes a huge impact.

“They’re still helping so many people and the needs are great, especially in issues like mental health and homelessness,” Hill said. “Our agencies need us to provide funds for them to be able to help these people.”

Hill also says to see a fundraising event go on for more than three decades is rare and he’s grateful to the Home Oil Company for keeping it going.
