Nearly 120 golfers teed up for the third annual Swing for the Lights golf tournament at White Horse Golf Club in Kingston.

The event, which included a barbecue catered by Mike’s Four Star BBQ in Kingston, raised more than $13,000 toward the installation of lights at the Kingston High School athletic fields. That money, along with other funds raised, puts KHS about $3,000 shy of the total amount needed for the completion of the lights project.

“We are already making plans for a special event in August to raise the remaining amount,” said Kingston-NK Rotary President-elect Skip Peters.

In addition to contributing to the stadium lights fund and enjoying a day on the links, one lucky group of golfers got to play with former Seattle Seahawks running back Randall Morris, who now resides in Seattle.

“I think everybody had fun,” said event organizer and Rotarian Clint Boxman. “It was a good time.”
