Golfers gathered at the Morgan Creek course Thursday for a 6th annual tournament that benefits recreation programs for teens and young adults at Semiahmoo House.
The society is a non-profit organization that provides services and support to people with disabilities and their families.
Money raised at the "Texas scramble" golf tourney will go to camps, "Friday Flix" movie nights, after-school care, photography courses, music therapy and other programs offered at the facility, at 15306 24th Ave., South Surrey.
The cost to enter the golf tournament was $225 per person, and 134 people got involved for a day of golf and dinner.
Live and silent auctions of donated items also helped the cause. The live auction of nine items - including bottles of wine, trips, dinners, tickets to Surrey Eagles hockey games and more - raised around $6,100, said Paul Wheeler, executive director of Semiahmoo House Society.
"It was a wonderful tournament," said Wheeler. "A lot of great people were there with a lot of compassion for our cause, a lot of commitment to our cause, so it was great."
