Lawrence golfers raise more than $20,000 for local charities

June 25, 2013


Lawrence golfers who participated in the Hundred Hole Hike Monday raised more than $20,000 for two local organizations, Douglas County Court Appointed Special Advocates and Dazzlers Christian Dance.

The event, which challenges golfers to complete 100 holes of golf in just one day, raises money for charities nationwide.

Four out of the five local golfers participating at the Lawrence Country Club completed their goal of 100 holes. Catherine Shenoy, Kristen Samp and Pat Hoppa played 100 holes each, and Harry Herington completed 108. An injury midway through kept John Ross from completing the extensive course, but he still managed to finish 45 holes.

Pleased with the fundraiser's results, Samp said the event's success was worth the difficulty of the task.

"It was a lot harder than we thought it would be," Samp said. "We were really happy when we got to that 100th hole."

So what is "Christian" dance and how does it differ from any other form of dance? Must involve a lot of genuflecting and hand motions of prayer in the dance routine.
