The Big Ed’s Memorial Golf Tournament on April 28 will benefit Community Mediation Services of Anderson Country, providing participants a great way to give back to the youth and families in the community while having a great day of golf, a press release said.
It’s the 16th Annual Big Ed’s Memorial Golf Tournament. It will be on Friday, April 28, at the Oak Ridge Country Club.
“Oak Ridge Country Club provides a beautiful and challenging setting for all golfers,” the press release said.
The Tournament is a two-session, scramble format with two flights: 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Golfers will get a complimentary breakfast, beverage carts, and a smoked barbecue lunch. Prize contests for participants in each flight will be awarded and a Hole-in-One Grand Prize will be available. Free Big Ed’s shirts and golf towels for all golfers are included. A Silent Auction will be held in conjunction with the Tournament. Auction items will be available for viewing online at www.peacefulresolution.org.
The registration deadline is Monday, April 24 ($125/player; $500/team). Registration forms are available from the CMS Office at (865) 463-6888 or by e-mailing [email protected]. Online registration is available on the CMS website at www.peacefulresolution.org.
Big Ed’s Memorial Golf Tournament honors the community spirit and caring of both Big Ed Neusel, founder of Big Ed’s Pizza, and David Neusel and their belief in giving to others while seeking recognition from no one. Community Mediation Services, working in Anderson County for 30 years, exemplifies the long-time interest of the Neusels in supporting youth and families.
Community Mediation Services’ four programs use trained volunteer mediators from the community for no-cost mediations: School Attendance (Truancy) Mediation; Victim Offender Reconciliation Program (VORP); Access/Visitation Mediation; and Teen/Parent Mediation. Mediators don’t take sides or make decisions, but do help families solve their own problems through agreements they themselves write and decide, the press release said.
“Studies show that agreements reached through mediation are more likely to be carried out than orders imposed by a judge,” the press release said.
“Come join us!” the release said. “You will have a wonderful time on a terrific golf course, and you will be supporting a valuable community resource.”
More information will be added as it becomes available.
