Jacob B. Elliott Memorial Tournament Donates Proceeds to the First Tee of Coastal Carolinas

“Dear First Tee Supporters,

We wish to convey our deep and heartfelt thanks to all of you who supported the Jacob Elliott Memorial Golf Tournament on Sunday March 8, 2020 at the True Blue Golf Resort.  Both of us were very moved by all the friendship and love that folks demonstrated for our Jacob – through their participation in this tournament (playing golf, monetary donations, sponsorships, raffle prize donations, volunteers in the event, thoughts, prayers).  We are so grateful for this tournament and its resulting monetary donation for The First Tee of the Coastal Carolinas.  We recognize and value that First Tee works to enable and enrich the lives of youth.  It is our pleasure to have designated this memorial donation to support local First Tee efforts – college scholarships, youth programs, and events in the Grand Strand area.

Jacob initially came to Myrtle Beach in January 2009 attending the Golf Academy of America and graduated in April 2010.  During the next nine years he lived and worked in the North Myrtle Beach and Murrells Inlet areas.  Throughout this time, Jacob was fortunate to make many acquaintances and dear friends, and eventually came to value Murrells Inlet as his second home and family.  His life was blessed with much happiness, joy, and accomplishment during his daily interactions with friends, coworkers, clients, and their families.

This memorial donation will also enable Jacob’s strong work ethic, goodwill, and love to live on – within the area and for its people that he loved and cared about so much!  Such an incredibly special gift!  From the depths of our hearts, we thank each of you.  Your generosity and thoughtfulness overwhelm us and are greatly appreciated!”

Regards,

William (Bill) and Donna Elliott
