The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa is holding a special golf tournament to benefit the Asheville Fire Department’s Fallen Firefighters Fund. On Monday September 12, from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., firefighters, police officers and EMS workers who present their badge can play 18 holes of golf at The Grove Park Inn's award winning, Donald Ross designed course for a $25 donation. Volunteers will also be stationed at the golf course collecting donations until 2 p.m. All proceeds will go to the Fallen Firefighters Fund, set up by the Asheville Fire Department and Mission Health System to assist the family of Capt. Jeff Bowen, an Asheville firefighter who was killed in the line of duty on July 28, 2011, as well as firefighters who were injured that day.
In support of this golf fundraiser, Grove Park Inn employees will also be selling hot dogs and soft drinks, with proceeds benefitting the Fund. Employees will also be collecting donations from community members until 2 p.m. There will also be a raffle for a round of golf, a one night stay at the legendary Grove Park Inn, and other great prizes. To register to play in this special tournament, or for more information, contact Mike Marshall of the Asheville Firefighters Association at 828-775-8650.
