DANIEL FURR MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP GOLF TOURNAMENT

THE 6TH DANIEL FURR MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP TOURNAMENT was held on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5TH, 2014 at Connestee Falls in Brevard, NC. We enjoyed perfectly clear cool fall weather as a nice turnout of 94 golfers and 18 volunteers joined us for this year’s event.  It was great to have 13 father and son teams, 14 college players, and 10 high school players.  Many won prizes and all seemed to enjoy the delicious BBQ and Brunswick stew served up by George and Stephanie at the awards dinner.  Net proceeds of over $9,000 will provide 12 students with college scholarships and support a student mission trip to Guatemala next spring.  Our precious Lord truly blessed us all by bringing everything together with the precise assortment of people, nice prizes, perfect weather, along with great food and fun for all.  Sandra and Joe wish to thank HIM along with all sponsors, donors, volunteers, and participants who came together to make this year’s event one of the best so far.  See Our Tournament Purpose page and drop down to “Event photos 2014″ for team photos and more.  More photos coming soon.   

TOURNAMENT GOALS ARE TO PROVIDE FUNDING FOR THE DANIEL FURR MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND founded in 2009 to offer college education opportunities and to help educate on the dangers of teenage exposure to alcohol.  From previous Tournaments 60 scholarships have been awarded to full time students totaling $37,600.  Sandra Furr noted, “This is how we honor Daniel’s memory.  We have resolved to trust God and to work with Him to allow good to come from our tragic loss while pointing to the reality of how fragile young lives are when exposed to alcohol and how vitally important it is to be ready to meet the Lord Jesus at ANY age. Without His grace and faithfulness, we could not survive this heartbreak but with Him we know the future is infinitely bright.”
