CRESWELL, Ore. - Dozens of golfers in the area took on playing 100 holes of golf in 12 hours Friday, all for a good cause.
Twenty-six golfers showed up bright and early Friday morning at Emerald Valley Golf Resort for the 2nd annual Feynman Charity Golf Marathon. Each golfer had the task of playing 100 holes (roughly five-and-a-half rounds of 18 holes) in one day on Friday.
By playing the endurance-style golfer's challenge, each golfer raised $1,000 for Court Appointed Special Advocates, also known as CASA. Golfer Danielle Uhlhorn said raising money for child abuse advocates is something dear to her heart.
"Having benefited from having a CASA advocate myself as a child, it's an honor to be out here to help other kids," Uhlhorn said.
CASA officials said there are about 400 foster children on their waiting list for an advocate. In total, this year's Feynman Charity Golf Marathon raised close to $30,000 for CASA.
