ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  For die-hard golfers, and those helping charity, it's never too hot to hit the links.  The Charity League of Albany is celebrating its 50th year of service to the community.

They held the 3rd Annual Birdies for Charity Golf Tournament at Doublegate Country Club Monday. It was organized by the Debutante Club, a group of 26 young women who just finished their freshman year of college, and want to serve their community.

Anchorage Director Kenny Phillips said, "This is just awesome to know not only the adults of our community are doing things to support us, but also the youth and the college age kids of our community."

Debutante Mary Thomas Pickett said, "It makes me proud to know that throughout our college and summer busy schedules that we can take time and put all this together and it's going to be a great success and today we've had a great turnout."

The goal was to raise more than $20,000. That money will benefit The Anchorage, the Lily Pad, Liberty House, and Children's Miracle Network.

     For the older generation, people remember the pre-flood, pre-Albany Mall days when downtown Albany was the place to shop and eat. Now, it's the younger generation that's pushing for a vibrant downtown.
