Irene Wortham Center golf tournament funds scholarships for early learners

May 9, 2017

The 17th Annual Irene Wortham Center Benefit Golf Tournament will take place on Friday, June 16 at Broadmoor Golf Links in Fletcher. All proceeds will go toward providing scholarships for needy children at the Early Learning Center. The Early Learning Center serves children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old, about half of whom have developmental delays, and almost all of whom come from families in need. Organizers hope to raise $30,000 this year. Blue Ridge Pharmacy is leading the way with a $5000 contribution. There are opportunities for players and non-players to show their support. Help children with disabilities in your community by registering today!
