The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas Host 4th Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Major Williford and Marshall Moody

After weeks of meetings of Salvation Army Advisory Board members and staff the Annual Charity Golf Tournament kicked off on Friday June, 17. Registration began at 11am and was followed by a lunch for participants provided by The Salvation Army. Team and Hole sponsors gathered at Stonebridge Meadows Golf Club and heard words by Marshall Moody (Advisory Board member), Major Tim Williford and special guest, Sports Talk radio host Bo Mattingly, before they took off to play!

There were 22 teams of four entered in the four man scramble. Many pictures were taken and connections made, but all the proceeds from the tournament were donated to The Salvation Army to help in it’s mission of providing assistance to those in need in Benton and Wahsington Counties. Bo Mattingly stuck around and did a live broadcast of his show from the golf club.



There were three places given out at the tournament. 3rd place went to Northwest Electric!

Welcome to The Salvation Army of NWA’s Offical Blog!

Hello there! Welcome to the offical blog of The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas! We’re so glad you stopped by!
Maybe you’re wondering to yourself: “What is The Salvation Army? I thought it was just homeless shelters and thrift stores?” You might be surprised to find that The Salvation Army is an international religious and charitable movement. It is a branch of the Christian Church that is organized and operated in military fashion. Members of The Salvation Army include:
  • Officers (Clergy)
  • Slodiers/adherents (Laity)
  • Members of various activity groups and VOLUNTEERS (The Salvation Army could not run without volunteers!)

The Salvation Army is motivated by LOVE FOR GOD and a concern for the NEEDS OF ALL HUMAITY.
