Charity events in the Twin Counties

A few weeks ago, I helped organize the 2nd Annual Operation Nineveh Charity Golf Tournament at Northgreen Country Club.

And I've said this before: helping put together a charity golf event is no easy task. With that said, I want to help out others who are doing the same thing by promoting local golf tournaments here in this blog.

So here are a few events coming up, including two set for Friday.
