Earlier this month, Carolina Kids Classic held its annual golf tournament at Finley Golf Course to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill and its programs.
With the goal of raising money and awareness for the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill, this year’s event marked the thirty-first year of the charity golf tournament and raised nearly $80,000 for the organization.
The golf tournament hosted attendees including UNC Athletics alumni Antawn Jamison, Tyler Hansbrough, Tyler Zeller, Sean May and Colin Bates — as well as former Carolina Hurricanes players Cam Ward and Erik Cole.
Since its creation in 1988, the Carolina Kids Classic annual golf tournament has raised over $4 million for kids across North Carolina. The Carolina Kids Classic was founded by Woody Durham, the “Voice of the Tar Heels,” and Greensboro businessman Mike Haley.
The Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill serves as a home for injured or ill children and their families. Annually, the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill helps approximately 1,600 families and is the only location that provides service for families from all 100 countries in North Carolina.
