Published 12:00 am Saturday, May 19, 2007
More than 200 golfers helped raise in excess of $50,000 at Cambrian Ridge here Friday, participating in the 8th annual Easter Seals tournament with proceeds earmarked for the Early Learning Center.
“It was another great event,” tournament founder and former Easter Seals chairman Ronnie Paulk beamed. “It's a wonderful organization and our community and sponsors have always been just great in supporting the tournament.”
Twenty of the 50 teams had Greenville ties.
“It's our biggest event of the year,” Debbie Lyons, administrator of the Montgomery-based group, said. “Monies we raise here will support young children who have special needs, so it's a good cause.”
Easter Seals Central Alabama is active in 12 counties. It will soon be host to a Certified Nursing Program at L.V. Stabler Memorial Hospital here.
Friday's event was actually three handicap tournaments within a single tournament.
