Proceeds from this event go toward providing services and support to these deserving individuals. LVOC provides adult learners the English communication and literacy skills they need to reach their full potential as individuals, parents, workers and citizens. Adults are given the opportunity to achieve personal freedom by building basic reading, writing and technology skills at no cost in a confidential environment. “By supporting this tournament, you will help us reach the people in our county who need help the most. You can make reading as easy as hitting a golf ball.” said  Carhart.
