The EIGHTH ANNUAL DANIEL FURR MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP GOLF TOURNAMENT in Brevard, NC

On Sunday, October 2nd, 2016 the 8th Annual Daniel Furr Memorial Scholarship Tournament came to Connestee Falls Golf Club in Brevard NC. Hosts Joe and Sandra Furr were joined by 86 golfers and 18 volunteers on a beautiful afternoon. $8,000 in net proceeds will provide scholarships for another 10 local college students in 2017 through the J. Daniel Furr Memorial Scholarship. With these proceeds, 93 students will have benefitted from over $62,000 in scholarships from all 8 Tournaments combined. At the BBQ awards dinner prizes for first, second, and third place teams were awarded. Prizes were also awarded for 3 Longest Drives, 3 Closest to Pins and more. A wonderful day of fun, good fellowship, beautiful scenery, nice prizes, and great food was enjoyed by all. Sandra and Joe expressed full gratitude for all of the generosity of sponsors, donors, prizes, golfers and the answered prayers that made this year’s event possible. “We are humbled by the support and kindness we receive each year from so many in the community and are especially grateful to our LORD for faithfully bringing it all together for the benefit of many.” PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF OUR MAJOR SPONSORS AT THE BOTTOM OF EACH PAGE.

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. 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 know the future is infinitely bright.”
