Autumn & Friends golf tournament Sept. 22

Smith said Kolvrig approached them and wanted to help raise money for the CF Foundation, offering to hold a party at his restaurant.

Blake is very involved in the music industry and offered to help us raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis at his establishment, she said.

The party will feature a performance by local country music band the Skahls, a mini-silent auction and a chance to sign up for the golf tournament or purchase tickets to the dinner following the tournament.

Admission to the party is $10 at the door and all money raised will go to the CF Foundation.

The third annual Autumn & Friends golf tournament will later be held on Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Windtree Golf Club in Mt. Juliet. With either an 8 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. shotgun start, the tournament is a Four-Person Scramble style.

The field is limited to the first 120 paid entries. The entry fee is $120 per person or $420 for a team of four. Smith said all those wishing to play must sign up by Sept. 15.

Those who enter the tournament receive a team photo courtesy of Annies Photography, Inc., range balls on the day of the event, and snacks and drinks on the course. Also, golfers can compete in Hole in One contests sponsored by Andrews Cadillac and U.S. Community Credit Union. Golfers will also be awarded for the longest drive and closest to the pin.

Following the tournament, dinner will be catered by Courtneys and prizes will be handed out for golfers and the Skahl Family will again perform throughout the evening.
