Golf outing to benefit Sons and Daughters of Douglass scholarship fund

From staff reports

KINGSPORT — The Sons and Daughters of Douglass High School Alumni Association will hold its 2012 golf outing Saturday at Warriors Path State Park. Proceeds from the event will be used to fund scholarships for area students.

Calvin Sneed, with Sons and Daughters of Douglass Inc., said the golf outing has been held for about 10 years to raise money for scholarships. “We’re trying to get the word out now because it’s really a fun event, and it’s really going to benefit kids, and that’s what it’s all about. And the golfers can come out and just have fun,” Sneed said.

Tee time is at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start. Trophies will be awarded for first-place teams, closest to the pin, and longest drive. Individual entry fees are $75, and foursome teams can sign up for $300. Sponsors are needed, and donations are needed for awards, gifts and prizes.

For more information contact John Hardy at (423) 378-5572 or Frank Horton Jr. at (865) 382-4144.

Sons and Daughters of Douglass Inc. is a nonprofit corporation that has awarded more than 25 scholarships to deserving students in the past 20 years. For more information on the organization visit
