Golf tournament benefits Red Cross

The Elizabeth Hanford Dole Chapter of the American Red Cross will have the 10th annual American Red Cross Food Lion Golf Classic on Friday.
Proceeds from the tournament will benefit local Red Cross programs and services, such as disaster services and services for military members and their families.
ěThe Red Cross contributes in so many ways to Rowan County. From disaster relief to blood drives to CPR training, the Red Cross is always there. Our annual golf tournament has become our primary fundraiser,î said Stephen Bullock, chairman of the golf committee. ěContributions from the golf tournament fund many of the critical services the Red Cross provides throughout the year.î
In addition to lunch and golf, there is also a chance to challenge our celebrity golfers.
Challenge David Whis-enant (bureau reporter for WBTV) at the putting green to see if you can putt the ball closer to the hole.
Challenge Sherriff Kevin Auten of Rowan County on a par three drive and see who lands closest to the pin.
Lunch will be 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., followed by 1 p.m. Shotgun Start Captainís Choice at the Country Club of Salisbury Donald Ross Course, 747 Club House Drive, Salisbury.
