First Fundraising Golf Tournament at Greenbrier Country Club.
We had our First Annual Fundraising Tournament on Monday, September 16 at Greenbrier Country Club. We want to thank all of our sponsors as well as all of the golfers, volunteers and athletes that made this event a big success. It was a beautiful day and everyone had a fabulous time playing golf. In Special Olympics everyone is a winner so we had prizes ready for every golfer. Thank you to everyone who donated a prize for this tournament.  
A special thanks goes out to Martha Williamson and Sherry York for taking the lead on this amazing fundraising event. Thanks also to all of our committee members who worked hard to make this come together.
