SEVENTH DANIEL FURR MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP GOLF TOURNAMENT in Brevard, NC

On Sunday, October 18th the 7th Daniel Furr Memorial Tournament was held at Connestee Falls Golf Club in Brevard NC on a crisp fall afternoon.  A nice turnout of 77 golfers and 15 volunteers made for an enjoyable day of golf, good fellowship, great food, nice prizes, and fun for all.  The abundant wildlife and fall foilage were on full display.  Thanks to the Faithfulness of our LORD along with our generous sponsors the net proceeds will provide TEN scholarships for local college students and support a student mission trip to Guatemala next spring.  Our heartfelt thanks to all contributors.  SEE OUR MAJOR SPONSORS AT THE BOTTOM OF EACH PAGE ON THE SITE.

TOURNAMENT GOALS ARE TO PROVIDE FUNDING FOR THE J. 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 72 scholarships have been awarded to full time students totaling $46,300.  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. With His grace and faithfulness, we are surviving our heartbreak and we know the future is infinitely bright.”
