The North Central N.C. Boys & Girls Clubs was designated as the beneficiary of Triangle North Healthcare Foundation’s second annual Golf Tournament, held last month at Henderson Country Club.
Based in Henderson and currently led by Acting Director April Scott, the Boys & Girls Clubs received $8,000 from the Foundation’s Chairman Eddie Ferguson and Executive Director Val Short during a presentation on Tuesday. “We had tremendous support of the local businesses and golfers for this tournament and we are pleased to be able to pass the proceeds on to an organization that is making such a difference with our youth,” said Short.
The funds will be used to support the Boys & Girls Clubs Healthy Lifestyles programs, especially the Obesity Prevention program that is already in place and has impacted club members in a positive way.
Triangle North Healthcare Foundation has continued its tradition of hosting a golf tournament that will benefit the health of the community through a local nonprofit organization, according to Short.
“We really appreciate the local business community supporting our event. Our sponsors made this gift to Boys & Girls Clubs possible,” said Short. “But we also had 68 very enthusiastic and generous golfers who had a great time and enjoyed the day,” she said.
Maria Parham Medical Center was the title sponsor and major contributor for the Tournament. Platinum sponsors for the Tournament were First Citizens Bank, Janet and Franklin Mills, and H.G. Reynolds Co. Rose Oil Company served as the Gold Sponsor this year. Hight Warehouse, Inc. and R. J. Burke, Inc. Construction of Littleton were Silver Sponsors. Duke Energy and Citizens Community Bank were beverage sponsors.
