The Golf Benefit presented by Community Bank is Meals-on-Wheels’ signature event, and the community looks forward to it every year, according to Ike Vera, Golf Chairman. “Each year we strive to make the Benefit special, and this year will not be any different, as we are pleased to be returning to the new Cleburne course. We have great giveaways, food, and cash prizes,” he added, “but most importantly, when you participate, Meals-on-Wheels benefits!”

The Golf Benefit’s proceeds, raised from golfers and sponsorships, will help Meals-on-Wheels provide over 280,000 meals for the elderly and disabled residents throughout Johnson & Ellis County.
