Dozens gathered at Dairy Creek Golf Course to participate in the 4th Annual Golf for a Good Reason 9-Hole Tournament organized by Prevention of Substance Abuse for Youth (POSAFY).

It is the organization’s biggest fundraising event, which provides funds to create campaigns, public service announcements, outreach programs and educational workshops for teens as young as 12-year-old across the Central Coast.

POSAFY aims to keep alcohol and drugs out of the hands of adolescents.

“With the proliferation of the use of marihuana, we have seen a lot of misinformation and lack of education in the community, so one of our missions is to educate our youth,” said Jody Belsher, president of POSAFY.

Tickets were $70 dollars which included greens fee, a cart, goodie bag and a donation.
