HNC Charity Golf Tournament a Great Success!
After a stormy night before the tournament the skies opened up to a beautiful day. The 6th Annual HNC Charity Golf Tournament took place at The Preserve at Jordan Lake in Chapel Hill on April 9th. Twenty-four teams headed to the greens for a terrific day on the course and a very successful tournament for HNC.
As with all the events, it would not have run smoothly without the great assistance of our volunteers – the Ingram Family, the Caldwell-Moody Family, Scott Lane, Richard and Shawna Wainwright, John Scott, Tim Duncan, Richard Atwood, Terry Lamb, Chris and Bennett Barnes. We thank them for their time and talent in helping to host the tournament.
A full field of golfers teed off at noon with mulligan packages and their Putting Contest tickets in hand. Our congratulations to Dan McKinley of the CSL Behring team for his hole in one that won him a set of Callaway Irons!
A delicious lunch was catered and donated by Sweet Tomatoes who brought along a team of staff to help with the serving! The Women of the Moose at the Lexington Moose Lodge donated the non-alcoholic beverages that kept the golfers hydrated during the day again this year and we are very grateful for their continued generosity and support of HNC. After coming in off the greens, the golfers were treated to a great dinner and appetizers. Our thanks to Em R Wings of Apex who generously donated the chicken wings for the event.
After dinner, prizes were awarded for teams that placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd along with the Most Honest team.

During the tournament, there were very special entrepreneurs, Nick and Colin Carbone, who set up a lemonade stand on one of the holes again this year with help from their parents in honor of their friend Bennett who has hemophilia. After the tournament, Nick and Colin presented HNC with a donation of $61.65 from the proceeds of the stand – thank you Nick and Colin for your generous support!
This year we also offered Hearts for Hope, a program to honor loved ones with hearts that were displayed in the clubhouse and on the greens. Our many thanks to all those who contributed to this program in honor, memory and celebration of someone special in their lives. Seventeen hearts were on display with heartwarming messages.
The night concluded with our live auction, raffle and thank you from our President, Richard Atwood, to the players, sponsors, committee members and volunteers. HNC would like to thank all of our sponsors, gift bag donors, raffle and auction donors, players, volunteers and committee members – Matt Barnes, Todd Holder, LaQuenta Caldwell-Moody, Jim O'Malley and Sue Cowell.
