The Central North Carolina Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society has been selected to receive proceeds from a charity golf tournament to take place August 21 at RedTail Mountain Golf Club in Mountain City, Tennessee. The tournament is open to the public and registration fees are $100 per golfer or $400 for a foursome. All are encouraged to attend.
RedTail Mountain, just 17 miles from Boone, NC features a signature golf course with breathtaking views and beautiful mountain vistas. And, the adjacent public air strip also makes travel to and from the area very convenient.
The tournament will feature a high-stakes hole-in-one competition hosted by RedTail Mountain. The winner of the hole-in-one competition will receive a home site in the private, golf community valued at $89,000.
RedTail Mountain Golf Club is one of the premiere courses in the high country, attracting players from all over the southeast. Players visit the course to enjoy the 400 ft. of elevation change in this true mountain course. Sam Adams, the director of golf and PGA Tour veteran comments, “It’s unlike any course you’ll play in the area. The elevation change creates a unique and exciting challenge at every hole.”
The event is sponsored by Casa Rustica, an Italian-American restaurant in Boone, NC, owned and operated by Rick Pedroni. For more information about this event, contact Casa Rustica (828)773-3421. To learn more about the hole-in-one contest, contact Kevin Downs at firstname.lastname@example.org
About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops people from moving. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S., and 2.5 million worldwide.
