Save the Date for the 19th annual Golf Tournament Presented by Data Facts to be held at the Links at Galloway on September 20, 2014 with an 8AM Shotgun Start.

Thanks again to all who joined us for last year’s tournament. All proceeds benefitted COMEC (The Commission on Missing and Exploited Children). Guests enjoyed an 8AM shotgun start and a chance to win a 2013 Honda Civic sponsored by Wolfchase Honda and a chance to win $5,000.00 cash by making a hole-in-one. Lunch was provided by Central BBQ, and an awards presentation and a live and silent auction followed. It is with sincere appreciation that we recognize the 100+ individuals who participated, the numerous local companies who donated auction items, board members who assisted and attended, volunteers from the Junior League of Memphis and the following donors:

Through the ticket sales and fundraising at this year’s event, we were able to raise nearly double the funds for the Commission on Missing and Exploited Children than we raised last year. Thank you again for your continued support.
