Becky Spell Vann, the administrator for the upcoming Tim’s Gift Golf Tournament, is very excited for this opportunity to be a huge help financially to those in medical need, as the funds for the golf tournament go towards the Hope Project.

The golf tournament, scheduled for this Friday, Sept. 23, is free of charge and Vann encourages anyone and everyone to come out and support the tournament. It will be held at the Coharie Country Club. Registration for the tournament will begin at 8 a.m., and breakfast will also be available. Official play begins at 9 a.m.

This is the sixth annual Tim’s Gift Golf Tournament, and the turnout is expected to be a whopping 100 people, although that number may increase.

A lot of other activities will also be held in addition to the tournament, including a silent auction with several gifts and a testimony from people that the golf tournament has financially helped.

“Anybody can come out during the morning while the golfers are playing and bid on these auctions,” Vann said.

Also, there will be a half-and-half drawing, as well as lunch for the golfers.

Vann plans to have three trophies presented to the winners of this tournament, something she is looking forward to and excited about.

“A trophy will be given for the most outstanding volunteer, as well as a Good Samaritan trophy, and a putting contest trophy,” Vann stated. The Good Samaritan trophy will be given to a golfer who has done a kind deed throughout the year that someone has noticed. The trophies, however, will be brought back yearly, and will be passed on to its winners from year to year. A plaque will be inscribed with the names of the winners and will be kept at Tim’s Gift offices in Clinton.

The golfers have a great opportunity to win a steak dinner for two for 52 weeks, as Ribeyes is offering this award if a golfer makes a hole-in-one. In addition to a steak dinner for a whole year, a golfer who makes a hole-in-one could also win a new tractor, sponsored by Billy Smith of Smith Auto Sales, or a brand new car from Donnie Lamm of Nissan.

Vann hopes that there will be a large turnout for a good cause.

“We, Tim’s Gift Board of Directors, volunteers, Jennifer Brewer and Becky Spell Vann, are grateful to all sponsors and supporters who enable us to help others and glorify God,” Spell said in a statement. “Tim’s Gift is a local footprint giving help and hope.”
