The Ronald McDonald House Charity hosted a fundraiser golf tournament at Canebrake Country Club where four Oak Grove students competed.

The event, held on October 16, raised thousands of dollars that will be directly donated to the Ronald McDonald House in Jackson. It will be used to support and house the families with children currently receiving treatment in the Ronald McDonald Hospital.

Oak Grove High students Hamp Fairey, Alec Hudson, Brand Thaggard, and Matthew Williams competed alongside 28 other teams in the tournament to represent Oak Grove High School.

There were many prizes to win throughout the course. At one hole, if someone shot a hole-in-one, they would win a brand new Ford F-150 donated by Courtesy Ford of Hattiesburg. At two other holes, the golfer closest to the pin would win $2,000 dollars. There was also a raffle and a silent auction provided by contributors with prizes such as SEC championship tickets.

While the Oak Grove team did not win the tournament, they helped raise money for the Ronald McDonald House.
