Altrusa golf proceeds go to buying books for elementary students

The 17th Annual Altrusa International Fall Golf Classic was finally held at the Hills of Cove Golf Course last Saturday, and even though, to some people’s chagrin, it coincided with the first day of deer hunting, 34 people showed up to play, eat, have fun and to help raise money for literacy.

Debbie Llacuna said Copperas Cove’s Altrusa’s Make A Difference project, which helps provide free books for children from first to third grade, is a big reason for the tournament. “The librarians at the schools order books through Scholastic book orders,” said Llacuna. “When we come down we put all the books out and the kids get to pick one, then they bring it to us and we put their name in it. They can’t believe they can keep it. A lot of these kids have never had a book of their own before and it makes them so happy.”
