Golf tourney a success

TARBORO — Paying it forward is what the 3rd Annual Robert Williams Memorial Golf Tournament, held on Aug. 18 at The Links at Cotton Valley was all about and it was a huge success.

A total of 145 golfers participated in the tournament and about 100 other persons attended to remember Robert Williams and help raise funds to help Michael Radford and his family.

As a result of the generous support from family, friends and area

Businesses, organizers were able to present Radford and his family with a check in the amount of $6,971.75.

The proceeds came from tournament fees and from sponsors and businesses such as Keihin Carolina System Technology, Krispy Kreme, Taco Bell, Chick-Fil-A, Abrams Bar-B-Q, Pridgen Motor Co., Eatmon Leasing Inc., nspect-A-Car, The Print Shoppe, Taylor Made Jewelry, Generations Tile and D & J Seamless Gutters.

The tournament, which had its beginnings to honor Williams, has now grown into one that helps raise funds to financially assist those battling a debilitating disease.

Next year’s tournament — and paying it forward to another family — is already being planned.
