Cochran Team wins 9th
Annual Steps to HOPE Golf Tournament
Red Fox Country Club was host to Steps to HOPE’s
9th Annual Golf Tournament on November 2nd this
year –arguably the most beautiful Autumn day ever!
Steps to HOPE’s tournament, which was attended by
many new teams this year and nearly 100 golfers, is celebrated
as the charity event of the season.
A new Toyota Camry was offered as a hole-in-one
prize on Red Fox Hole #10 again this year. While no one drove
the Camry home after the tournament, a few players – one of
whom was Steps’ Board of Directors President Paul Sutherland
– came very close,
landing their golf balls within inches of the hole!

to HOPE is greatly appreciative of the overwhelming support
shown by golfers, individuals and area businesses who not only
