Golf tournament a huge success!

The Greater Carolinas Chapter’s annual Charity Golf Tournament on Monday, Oct. 6, was a large success, bringing in about $20,000 for the chapter. A big thank you to the nearly 100 golfers who enjoyed a clear-skied morning and afternoon.

Highlighting the afternoon was an exciting $5,000 putt contest, won by golfer Richard Bates, who also came within just a few feet of winning the million-dollar shot!
