The 4th Annual United States Auto Club/MD (USAC/MD) Charity Golf Tournament benefiting the Survivor Fund was held at Celebration Golf Club on April 14, 2011 in conjunction with the PWOF Tow Show in Orlando, Fla.

Seventy-five golfers and 39 sponsors teamed up on a beautiful, sun-filled day at Celebration to raise $10,455 for the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum’s Survivor Fund. Craig Hamway, the new CEO of USAC/MD, made the presentation of the check to Jeffrey Godwin of towPartners and the Chairman of the Survivor Fund committee. Over the past four years, the tournament has raised over $40,000 for the Survivor Fund, which offers financial assistance to families of road service professionals killed in the line of service.

Special thanks go to Miller Industries for sponsoring the “Hole-in-One Wins a Tow Truck,” to United Road Towing for sponsoring the $5,000 putting contest, and to Condor for donating a motorcycle loader which was given as a raffle prize and won by Lou Farney of Farney’s Service in Wolcott, Ind. Thanks also to Western Towing in Denver, Colo., and United Recovery of Independence, Mo., for sponsoring the million dollar shootout, giving two golfers an opportunity to hole a shot from the 18th fairway and win $1,000,000. Unfortunately, there was no winner this year.

“I want to offer our thanks to the staff here at Celebration Golf Club, who put on a wonderful tournament, to our sponsors, and to the players who participated to make this a great event — and a special thanks to our tournament organizer, Matthew Miller,” said Hamway during the awards ceremony. “Thanks to all of you for helping us reach our goal again in support of this very important cause.”
