Davis golf tourney raises $4,000 for scholarships

The Davis County Commission presented a check for $4,000 in scholarship money Tuesday to Rep. Sheryl Allen, R-Bountiful, money that the commissioners raised through their annual golf tournament.

Allen will give each of the eight high schools in the county $500 to go toward student scholarships. Money from the tournament also went to two peer youth courts, after-school programs, Internet programs, a readers theater and to purchase library books for preschoolers.

In the past three years, participants in the Davis County Commissioners' Cup have raised $38,000 for youth programs, with 128 people participating in the tournament last year. This year's tournament will be Aug. 16 at Valley View Golf Course. For more information, call 451-3415.
