On June 7, 2018, the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill celebrated the 30th Annual Carolina Kids Classic Golf Tournament. Since its inception in 1988, the CKC has raised more than $4 million for children and families across North Carolina and beyond.

Legendary “Voice of the Tar Heels” Woody Durham and Greensboro businessman Mike Haley created the Carolina Kids Classic golf tournament to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill, while serving together on the organization’s board of directors in the 1980s.

This year’s tournament featured a special tribute to Mr. Haley and the late Woody Durham and Coach Dean Smith for their substantial contributions to the tournament. Families of the honorees were in attendance, as were Antawn Jamison, Tyler Hansbrough, Tyler Zeller and Cody Zeller.

Carolina Love is a series of stories written and presented by Ronald McDonald House Chapel Hill.

CAROLINA LOVE: Celebrating the stories of families, volunteers and donors who have made the House a true home away from home over the last 30 years. For three decades, we have embraced every family that has come to our door, and each has a unique story. These are but a few of the many stories the House has been a part of since it opened. Carolina Love is a behind the scenes look at what we do, those we serve and those on whom we depend to help us carry out our mission of keeping families close.
