Red Cross golf tournament fund raiser

June 23, 2003

Albany -- Albany's chapter of the American Red Cross needs money to rebuild its disaster services fund. So a number of golfer's were hitting them long to help the Red Cross stay ready to help others.

 Their disaster services fund has been cut because of the high number of times they have been called for aid. The 15th Annual Teed Off for Life golf tournament was played Monday afternoon at the Stonebridge Golf Club, to raise funds for their disaster services.

 Red Cross Vice Chairman Gus Walters said "This is really crucial for the Red Cross right now. We've had a lot of disasters in the area. And this is our sole source of financial means to help support the local disasters in the Albany and surrounding areas."

56 golfers teed it up to help the American Red Cross. The tournament will raise eight thousand dollars to fund the Albany chapter's disaster services.
