Golf Tournament to benefit Chris Cash Foundation

The East Carolina University Department of Kinesiology Graduate Student Organization will honor Capt. Chris Cash, an Army officer killed while serving in Iraq, with a fundraiser Oct. 10 at Brook Valley Country Club.

The 3rd Annual Golf Tournament Fundraiser will benefit the Capt. Christopher Cash Memorial Foundation of N.C., which helps fund college scholarships in North Carolina.  Cash was a graduate of ECU’s Department of Kinesiology, formerly Exercise and Sport Science.

Additional funds from the event will benefit Kinesiology graduate students with the expense of attending and presenting research at national conferences.

The golf tournament will begin at noon, with registration starting at 11 a.m. A $75 fee per person includes a catered lunch, 18 holes of gold with cart, beverages on the course and a chance to win prizes.  Individual competitions such as closest to the pin and a putting contest will take place.

Individual hole sponsorships are available for $50, which includes an 18 x 24” sign at the tee box on tournament day.
