FIFTH ANNUAL DANIEL FURR MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT
THE FIFTH ANNUAL DANIEL FURR MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT was held on Sunday, October 13th, 2013 at Connestee Falls Golf Club in Brevard, NC. Daniel’s parents, Sandra and Joe Furr, were joined by 70 golfers who enjoyed a nice fall day of golf, fellowship, special prizes, great food and fun for all. We raised $8,400 in scholarship funds for 12 Transylvania Co. college students to be selected in 2014. A BBQ awards dinner followed golf featuring Gary’s Famous BBQ and George’s spicy Brunswick stew recipe.
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 45 scholarships have been awarded to full time students totaling $29,200. Sandra noted, “This is how we honor Daniel’s memory. We have resolved to trust God and to work with Him to bring some good 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 pain but with Him we know the future is infinitely bright.”
