Kids need help to make it to The Masters

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Members of the I-Positive Initiative got a lesson in golf etiquette and rules Wednesday night at Flint River Golf Course. They'll be guest caddies at this year's Masters in Augusta, running errands to help the golfers.

They hope to raise $30,000 to pay for the trip. Parent Marlene Ramsey said, "The trip to The Masters is going to be an awesome experience for the children, but it is gonna have some financial pieces associated with it, so we just encourage the community if they feel this is an initiative of value to help the children get there."

The initiative is part of the non-profit group Hip Hop Grows Up that works to provide positive mentors to kids to help make sure they succeed.  You can find out how to donate at www.hiphopgrowsup.com.
