Charity golf tournaments in North Carolina


You know the old saying: "One paycheck away from being homeless." It's been around ever since I can remember, and I know plenty of people who really live paycheck to paycheck.

And with so many people who have lost their jobs in the past couple of years, I wonder how many of those people really did turn up homeless. I don't know any personally, but I did read about one man who lost his high-paying job and his house, but still has a nice roof over his head every night.

So what does this have to do with golf?

In April, my friend, Bryan Bush, is putting together a charity golf tournament in Rocky Mount, N.C., to raise money for a new homeless shelter and soup kitchen. The shelter will be called Operation Nineveh, and the tournament will be held April 16 at Northgreen Country Club.

We're going to have some great prizes and great golf for a great cause.

I've been talking this tournament up for the past couple of months, and I started thinking about other causes that are just as important as homelessness.

So I thought I'd throw a little publicity out there for some other charity golf events coming up in Eastern North Carolina.

  • This week, Northgreen will host a skills challenge to help raise money for the local American Red Cross' HEROES campaign. For $20, golfers will compete in four categories: driving, chipping, putting and an 150-yard approach shot. Scroll down on the Red Cross' Web site for more information.

These are just a few of the charity events coming up in the next month. If anyone knows of any others, let me know.

Obviously, I'm lobbying for the Operation Nineveh event, but take a look at all of them. There are a lot of people out there who need help.
