The 1st annual Team T Golf Tournament was held on August 11, 2012 at Kerr Lake Country Club in Henderson, NC. There were 93 total golfers that participated in a four man superball format. Golfers also had the option to purchase a mulligan (do-over) and a hand wedge (free throw of their ball) to help lower their score. The winning group of Jeff Watson, Brian Montgomery, Blake Montgomery, and Daniel Faulkner shot a blistering 21 under.
After the golf tournament finished, there was a BBQ dinner and silent auction. There were over 25 silent auction items available for bidding including a set of cornhole boards, a Gears of War gamer basket, an NC State Carter-Finley panoramic poster, two Corona beach umbrellas, two Corona mirrors, a massage gift certificate, some autographed Duke Football paraphernalia, a boys and girls skateboard, a Red Stripe sign, and multiple golf passes at various golf courses in the Raleigh area, just to name a few.
The over 25 total silent auction items raised $2,935.50. There were 27 corporate sponsors and 10 individual sponsors that combined to donate $7,950.00, including one anonymous corporate sponsor that donated $5,000.00. We also had several people that just came for the BBQ dinner. All the money has been collected and all expenses have been paid and the Team T Foundation for Leukemia Awareness is thrilled to announce that this event raised a total of $14,014.28.
Everybody at the Team T Foundation is thrilled and humbled by the outpouring of support we received for our inaugural fundraiser. Thank you so much to everybody who helped make this such a huge success. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
