Shawnee business gathers golfers for charity scramble

Special to the News-Star

PHARM+HOUSE Dispensary is hosting its second annual PH Charity Cup at the Choctaw Creek Golf Club in Choctaw on Sunday, May 16. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Shawnee Youth and Family Resource Center.

This unique golf scramble was created in 2020 as a way for the cannabis community to give back to those in need. Last year’s event in Seminole raised $7,000 for the Shawnee YFRC. That donation was used to fund such programs as their emergency children’s shelter.

This year’s cup was originally going to be held at the Jimmie Austin Golf Course, but because of a no smoking ordinance on all city locations in Seminole, plans were changed and event organizers found Choctaw Creek had an opening.
