If golf is your goal, there’s no time to lose!
The fourth annual Meg’s Smile Foundation Golf Tournament doesn’t happen till this summer, but last year spots sold out months in advance, so the time to act is now.
The tournament raises funds to help the all-volunteer, Holly Springs-based nonprofit to create "smiles" for children who are battling serious and terminal illnesses.
The organization was founded by Jim and Terri Wasley in 2011 following the loss of their daughter, Meg, to an inoperable brain tumor.
A typical smile begins with a limo ride for the recipient and family, a meal at a favorite restaurant followed by an experience designed specifically for that child.
“We find out what they like to do,” said Jim. “We get to know the family and know the kids.”
“We know what they’re going through. We have a personal connection in this terrible world of cancer,” said Terri. “We can look at the parents and say, ‘We understand.’”
This year’s golf tournament is set for Monday, July 21 at The Club at 12 Oaks in Holly Springs, with AM and PM tee times available, in a Captain’s Choice Scramble format.
The fun includes a $10,000 team putting contest, an awards lunch and dinner, and a par-3 challenge worth $1 million.
Prior to the golf tourney, a silent auction on Sunday, July 20 from 6 to 9 p.m., offers the opportunity to bid on dozens of items including gift baskets, jewelry, vacations, sports-themed goodies and more.
A live auction, open to the public, will feature Carolina Hurricanes fan packages.
