Community Action to benefit from 6th Isaacson golf event at Lakeside

Otter Tail-Wadena Community Action Council, Inc. (OTWCAC) will host its annual charity golf tournament at Perham Lakeside Golf Course on June 26. During the weeks surrounding the golf tournament, they are also partnering with local ministerial associations to raise funds through other events. This is the agency's only fund raising effort.

Otter Tail-Wadena Community Action Council has been serving families and individuals in Otter Tail and Wadena counties for 44 years, helping low-income individuals and families successfully resolve emergencies and move toward self-sufficiency.

The goal this year is to raise $16,000; an increase of $855 over 2008.

Last year's funds of $15,145 served 38 households. The funds were used to restore utility service or prevent utility disconnections, evictions, or foreclosure. This assistance helps a family maintain employment and stabilize housing. All money raised is paid out in direct service to clients, no administration or operational expenses are paid out of this fund.

Organizers are asking for prize donations, hole sponsors and event participants. Contributions are tax deductible.

Contributors are urged to contact Nelly Brasel, at 218-385-2900 - ext 105.
