The 9TH ANNUAL DANIEL FURR MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP GOLF TOURNAMENT in Brevard, NC
The Ninth Annual Daniel Furr Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament came to Connestee Falls Golf Club in Brevard, NC on Sunday, October 1st, 2017. 81 golfers enjoyed a beautiful cool fall afternoon and a 1:30 pm start. After golf we gathered at Atagahi Park for an awards BBQ dinner with Brunswick stew. Two participants were awarded special prizes for playing in all 9 Daniel Furr Tournaments: Dennis Clark won a $500 guided fly fishing trip for 2 from Headwaters Outfitters. Danny Harville won a $100 dinner for 2 from Jaime’s Creole Brasserie of Brevard. SEE OTHER PRIZES won below.
We saw the fingerprints of our LORD throughout the entire tournament with the great weather, a near full field of golfers, 20 helpful volunteers, generous sponsors and donors, nice prizes, delicious food and fellowship enjoyed by all. Thanks so much for all of the prayers that went forth.
$8,500 in proceeds from the Tournament go to the J. Daniel Furr Memorial Scholarship Fund making 10 more scholarships available for area college students. Over $70,000 has been raised from the nine Daniel Furr Memorial Tournaments increasing the scholarships offered to over 100.
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 life. We have resolved to trust God and to work with Him as He allows 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.”
