30th Birthday Celebration for Price Cutter Charity Championship

Sunday, July 28th wrapped up another year of success for the Price Cutter Charity Championship. The Arc of the Ozarks sponsored Go Blue FORE Autism Championship Sunday spreading awareness of the many autism services the organization provides. The Arc was set up on the 18th green under a blue tent. Staff and community members from The Arc volunteered their time to share information about The Arc’s autism services. Blueberries and cream popcorn generously donated by Ozark Mountain popcorn was a big hit again this year.

Blue was visible all over the course as players, spectators and volunteers showed their support. Families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder were admitted free.

Many spectators attended to watch a great game of golf and support their favorite local charities. This was the PCCC’s 30th year and 49 local children’s organizations were involved. The Arc once again sponsored VIP Parking has been involved with the tournament for 14 years.

The champion of the Price Cutter Charity Championship, Harry Higgs took home $126,000 and earned his PGA Tour card with this win. Higgs, finished Sunday with a 5-under-par 72 for a four-day total of 266 – or 22 strokes under par – at Highland Springs Country Club. That was two strokes better than runners-up Steve Wheatcroft and Andrew Svoboda.

Over the course of the weekend, thousands of people came out to the tournament and supported organizations like The Hope Foundation, Children’s Smile Center and Big Brothers Big Sisters. All the funds raised will be directed at children’s programming in each organization. The funds received for The Arc will go back to our No Limits Summer Camp program.

Mark your calendars for next year, July 23 -26, 2020.
