Valdosta golf tournament benefits Wounded Warriors Project

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Stone Creek Golf Club held its 4th annual Wounded Warrior Project Golf Championship Friday afternoon.

Wounded veterans were encouraged to participate, but the tournament was open to the public. The money raised will go to a hospital that specifically treats combat wounded veterans.
 
"You give an avid golfer a chance to come out, they're gonna come out. Especially for a wonderful program like this to help our wounded brothers and sisters who are defending our freedom," said Joey Williams, a Wounded Warrior Alumnist and competitor in the tournament.

For several weeks prior to the tournament, Williams went to businesses in the Valdosta Lowndes County area with a banner and to help raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project and to raise awareness about the tournament. Over 1,000 businesses signed the banner to show their support for the Wounded Warrior Project.
