Benefit golf tournament raises more than $5K for local nonprofit

GREENVILLE, S.C. – More than 125 players took part in the 47th annual Clyde Carr Golf Tournament, held last month at Rolling Green Golf Course in Easley.

The event raised a total of $5,600 for the North Greenville Food Crisis Ministry.

Carr started the tournament in 1967 for charitable causes, and he has helped support NGFCM with the event ever since it opened as a food closet in 1983.

The nonprofit, where Carr has served as a board member for the past nine years, offers temporary assistance, including food, clothing and crisis funds, to individuals and families who live in northern Greenville County.

"Fundraisers such as this help make it possible for this organization to serve thousands of people in the area during the year and make their lives a little better," NGFCM Executive Director Suzanne Kolb said.
