The fourth annual "Swing for Smiles" golf tournament in July raised a record $4,700 to support the Upper Valley Free Clinic's dental program. The 18-hole string scramble was held at Kahler Glen Golf Course and hosted by Kahler Glen Ladies Division. Seventy lady golfers participated from around Washington. Local businesses and individuals sponsored different holes and donated raffle prizes, making the day a fantastic success. Funding will go to support free dental consultations and referrals for urgent dental needs in the Upper Valley.
