WEDDINGTON – On May 7, more than 20 members of the Club at Longview, 8801 Longview Club Drive, Weddington, will play 100 holes of golf in one day all in the name of charity. And for the second year in a row, all proceeds benefit United Family Services and the construction of the new Clyde and Ethel Dickson Domestic Violence Shelter for Women and Children. Last year, the event raised more than $115,000 for the organization. This year, the golfers have already generated more than $98,000 through pledges and a silent and live auction.
Aside from raising money for United Family Services, the challenge of the tournament is to finish the first 36 holes of golf in 4.5 hours. Then they shift to “survival mode” to finish the middle 36 and then just hang on until the finish line.This is the fifth year the club has held the Longview 100.
The roster for golfers for this year’s tournament is full, but those interested in contributing can visit www.ufsevents.org. For more information, contact Bill Coy at email@example.com.
