NORTH CREEK - Representatives from the Black Mountain restaurant on Rt. 8 in North Creek presented a check to the North Country Outreach Center on Wednesday, Nov. 18. The donation is provided to aid in the charitable projects of the Outreach Center in local communities.
The money was generated from the annual Black Mountain Open held on Aug. 22 at Cronin's Golf Course. Each year, the monies generated from the golf tournament are donated to local and broad charitable organizations. Over 112 golfers participated in this years benefit tournament.
"We choose a different organization each year to receive the proceeds from the Black Mountain Open. We felt that the Outreach Center was very deserving," said Black Mountain restaurant owner Marion Eagan.
"We have so much going on here and the money will be distributed among our different efforts," said Outreach Center president Judy Brown.
Brown accepted the financial gift of $5,368 on behalf of the Outreach Center. Brown will direct portions of the money to their food pantry program and other social services programs championed by the Outreach Center.
