9th Annual HNC Charity Golf Tournament

Captain's Choice – Friday, April 12, 2013
The Preserve at Jordan Lake
840 The Preserve Trail – Chapel Hill, NC 27517

Hemophilia of North Carolina's 9th Annual Charity Golf Tournament was held on April 12th and the turnout this year was fantastic. The Preserve at Jordan Lake generously hosted our group for another year. The day sped along as volunteers worked hard on preparations as the golfers began to arrive. Starbucks Coffee graciously provided beverages to help everyone catch their stride before hitting the links for what would turn out to be a wonderfully fun day of golfing for everyone involved.

The weather this year threatened to not cooperate with us as the skies let loose a rather impressive downpour right before the tournament was about to begin. The threat of bad weather, however, could not dampen the spirits of the golfers or volunteers. Everyone stood around talking with one another and enjoying the lunches provided by JD's Tavern in Apex. The skies soon cleared and, even though the course was still very wet, the golfers began to work their way out towards the staggered starting positions and kick off the festivities.

Tom Bennett, HNC’s Executive Director, spoke before the golfers headed out to the links and thanked everyone for their support. Kedrion Biopharma donated non-alcoholic drinks to keep our golfers hydrated. Julie Baker tagged along with the golfers to take pictures of the players and capture their swings on camera, all of which are on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/HemophiliaNC.

As the golfers began to filter back to the clubhouse to check and compare scorecards, they were greeted by an impressive layout of food. Apex Wings provided the starters, and The Preserve at Jordan Lake provided a dinner sponsored by Bayer and CSL Behring. Many golfers were found digging into the spread as their families gathered with them after their action-packed day on the greens.

The raffle began soon after everyone got back. Items provided this year included a Carolina Hurricanes picture signed by #59 Chad LaRose, a Carolina Panthers helmet signed by All-Pro running back and lead rusher #34 DeAngelo Williams, assorted gift cards totaling over $200.00, brunch for two at the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Course, $100 in gift cards to Kroger and many more fantastic items. And the raffle tickets did sell for obvious reasons!

After the raffle the tournament winners were announced and awareded amazing prizes. The last order of business for the day was to thank everyone once again for their continuing support. We offered a special thank you to Pfizer Hemophilia who sponsored this year's wonderful event. We also thanked everyone for their support, including the golfers and their families, with special thanks to our fantastic volunteers, who worked tirelessly to make 9th Annual HNC Charity Golf Tournament a rousing success.
