8th Annual HNC Charity Golf Tournament
Friday, April 20, 2012
The Preserve at Jordan Lake

Chapel Hill, NC 27517
The weather, a tournament’s worst enemy, behaved and it turned out to be a beautiful day for golfing! We held our 8th Annual Charity Golf Tournament on April 20th and were accompanied by some wonderful individuals.
The Preserve at Jordan Lake generously hosted our group for another year. The day quickly kicked off as golfers began to arrive. Starbucks Coffee served beverages to help everyone wake up before their long, hard day of golfing began.
Before heading out onto the holes, we all enjoyed delicious lunches, complements of JD’s Tavern. Perry Parker, sponsored by CSL Behring, and Kathy Register, HNC’s Treasurer and volunteer interim Executive Director, spoke before the golfers departed onto the green and thanked them for their support. The Women of the Moose at the Lexington Moose Lodge donated non-alcoholic drinks to keep our golfers hydrated. Julie Baker hitched rides in the golf cart to take pictures of the players and capture their swings on camera, all of which are on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/HemophiliaNC.
Golfers began pouring back in just in time to fill up on some tasty wings provided by Apex Wings. Shortly after, the Preserve served dinner as families started to arrive. Drinks started to appear as people began to wind down from the day’s festivities.
The raffle items included a signed Davis Love III Ryder Cup flag, packages from the Master’s, foursomes at the Preserve and Chapel Ridge, and much, much more. Raffle tickets were selling like hot cakes this year and for good reason!
After drawing the raffle tickets and crowning winners with their prizes, we were left with one very important task...to thank everyone for their continued support. We gave a special thank you to CSL Behring, who stepped in as our tournament sponsor for this year. From the golfers to the sponsors, we would not have been able to host our 8th Golf Tournament without this support.
