The 14th Annual Big Ed’s Memorial Golf Tournament is scheduled for Friday, April 24, and it will benefit Community Mediation Services of Anderson Country.
The Golf Tournament will be held at the Oak Ridge Country Club Golf Course.
“The Oak Ridge Country Club provides a beautiful setting for golfers at this popular tournament,” a press release said.
The Tournament honors the community spirit and caring of “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, and it provides important support for Community Mediation Services’ work with youths and families, the release said.
Community Mediation Services has worked with youth and families in Anderson County for 29 years. It has four programs that 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 they do help families solve their own problems through agreements they decide and agree on themselves. Studies show that agreements reached through mediation are more likely to be carried out than orders imposed by a judge.
The Tournament is a two-session, scramble format with two flights: 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. A new Chevrolet, provided by Sexton Automotive Group, will be the grand prize for the Hole-in-One. A complimentary continental breakfast, beverage carts, and a smoked barbecue lunch, as well as a variety of prize contests, will be available. Free shirts for all golfers and numerous door prizes are included. The early registration deadline is Thursday, April 16 ($100/player and $400/team; $125 and $500 after April 16 or at the door). Sponsorships are available, with your advertising at the Tournament, at levels from $100 to $2,000.
Additional information and registration forms are available by calling (865) 483-6888 or by sending an email to [email protected]. Information and on-line registration are also available through the website at www.peacefulresolution.org.
