Great Falls Friends and Neighbors women participated in the Chipping in to End Domestic Violence charity golf tournament, hosted by Cooper Ginsberg Gray since the inaugural tee-off in 1999. The 13th annual tournament was held on Friday, Oct. 4 at the Laurel Hill Golf Club in Lorton and raised $25,000. All of the proceeds benefited the women and children at Artemis House.
During the years since 1999 the tournament has raised over $212,000 for Artemis House. This success is thanks to a wide range of support from the community. Throughout the tournament's history, over 1,000 golfers have participated and each year approximately 100 businesses and individuals participate as sponsors or donors.
