Participants in Power Gen golf tournament enjoy good time for a great cause
Fifteen teams and 59 participants hit the greens on a cool fall morning to support an important cause. Entergy Mississippi’s power generation group recently held its second annual golf tournament at Dancing Rabbit Golf Club, raising $16,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The team taking the trophy included Grand Gulf Nuclear Station employees Meredith Spencer, nuclear security officer; Larry Savell, supervisor, construction/field engineering; and Johnny Steverson, supervisor, facilities; and their friend Jacob Brister, but all teams competing had a much higher purpose: helping the children being treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the children from across the United States and other countries who benefit from the research conducted there.
Second Annual Power Generation Golf Tournament
Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Donations enable St. Jude to provide exceptional care to the children being treated there, while never sending a bill to families for treatment, travel, housing or food. St. Jude shares their scientific discoveries with the world.
The golf tournament was a team effort of the planning committee, participants, volunteers and sponsors, including United Rental, E3, FC&E, Southern Apparatus and Grainger. Entergy Mississippi and the company’s power generation organization were also major contributors.
“I would like to take a moment to express my appreciation to everyone who participated in and helped with the tournament,” said Randy Palmertree, plant manager for Entergy Mississippi’s Choctaw Plant and chair of the golf tournament planning committee. “It is an honor to support St. Jude and the incredible work they do for children and their families.”
The power generation team has begun planning for the third annual golf tournament to be held in Fall 2024.
