While rescheduling our annual Golf Tournament for Hurricane Irma seemed like a set back, we couldn’t have had a more beautiful day to play golf and raise money for the East Mecklenburg High School Foundation.
Our golfers enjoyed boxed lunches from Anderson’s Catering, beer from Sycamore Brewing and a great dinner from Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation. Our volunteers: Ruth Blackley Harris ’85, Dottie Bridges Koster ’80, Stephanie Cornett, Sumer O’Boyle ’95, Billie Little and Will Stietz ’17 did a wonderful job checking our Golfers in and helping during the event.
Before teeing off, we were greeted by the East Meck ROTC who presented the state and American flags while East Meck Senior, Jayda Snell sang our National Anthem. Winning this year’s tournament was the team representing our sponsor, Charlotte Endodontics. Congratulations to Russell Mansfield, Mark Howell, Rex Savage and Chuck Whisnant for their -21 game!!!
At the conclusion of the event, Harrison Jones was our lucky winner of the Great Golf Ball Gamble and generously donated all his winnings back to the Foundation! Jerry Helms ’59 helped us auction off items from MorningStar Marinas and Perry’s Fine, Antique & Estate Jewelry.
