2014 Chapel Hill Police Dept. Annual Golf Tournament

May 5, 2014

See event website for details

Law Enforcement Torch Run®

The 17th Annual Chapel Hill Police Charity Golf Tournament benefiting Special Olympics North Carolina will take place on Monday, May 5th, 2014 at the prestigious Governors Club, Mt. Carmel Church Road, Chapel Hill, NC.

This tournament is a major part of our fund-raising efforts in conjunction with the 2014 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. All the money we raise goes directly to help cover the expenses of the Summer/Winter/Fall State Special Olympic Games. In the last sixteen years, this tournament has raised over $1,040,000 through your continued support. It has grown to become one of the largest charity events held at the Governors Club.

Last year, law enforcement officers in North Carolina raised over $1,010,000 for Special Olympics. The Chapel Hill Police Department is pleased to announce that we raised a little over $48,000 , which placed us as the second highest fundraising department in the state out of 115 departments participating. Our department’s goal this year is to reach $60,000.

We look forward to your participation in this very worthwhile event. Come have fun and contribute to a great cause at the same time. The first 27 teams to respond will have their choice of starting position on the tees. In addition, a special prize drawing from the team captains names of the first 27 teams at the opening ceremony will yield a lucky winner one round of golf for four at Governors Club. Please ensure your team placement with our event as early as possible.

Below you will find an application distributed to the corporate community, law enforcement officers, and the general public. Please do not hesitate to call Officer Phil Smith, our Torch Run Coordinator, if you have any questions or want more information. You can reach Officer Smith at (919) 968-2864 or by email:psmith@townofchapelhill.org.
