Hole-in-One Wins Local Golfer New Rolex
One swing of the club in a Danville golf tournament for a good cause, and local golfer Mark Matheny earned himself a brand-new Rolex watch, courtesy of sponsor Heller Jewelers. Mark Matheny recorded a hole-in-one last month at Crow Canyon Country Club while playing in the Discovery Counseling Center's annual golf tournament, marking the first time in the tournament's 17-year history that a golfer tallied an acre to win the Heller Jewelers prize. He recently joined Kathy Chiverton, executive director of Discovery Counseling Center, at Heller Jewelers with owners Scott and Catherine Heller to pick out his new watch.
The 17th annual Discovery Counseling golf Classic raised almost $25,000 for the organization, "which will provide much-needed financial assistance to families who might otherwise not be able to afford mental health counseling," Chiverton said. Discovery Counseling offers affordable, high-quality mental health services and strategies for improving bonding and healthy communication among families. Specific counseling occurs in areas such as child temperament, adolescent issues, alcohol recovery, family disharmony, anger management, anxiety, eating disorders, depression, divorce, grief and loss, and self-esteem.
