The 18th Annual Big Ed’s Memorial Golf Tournament on Friday, April 26, will benefit Community Mediation Services of Anderson Country.
It will provide participants a great way to give back to the youth and families in our community while having a great day of golf, a press release said.
You can join Big Ed’s Pizza and Community Mediation Services for the golf tournament on Friday, April 26, at the beautiful and challenging Oak Ridge Country Club, the press release said.
The tournament will start at 8:30 a.m. April 26 in a scramble format. Golfers will get a complimentary breakfast, beverage carts, and a smoked barbecue lunch provided by Big Ed’s. Prize contests for participants will be awarded along with a hole-in-one grand prize. Free Big Ed’s shirts and golf towels for all golfers are included, the press release said. An on-site silent auction will be available.
The registration deadline is Monday, April 22 ($125/player; $500/team). Registration forms are available from the CMS Office by calling (865) 463-6888 or by sending an e-mail to [email protected]. Online registration is available on the 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,” the press release said. “Community Mediation Services, working in Anderson County for 31 years, exemplifies the long-time interest of the Neusels in supporting youth and families.”
Corporate sponsors supporting CMS through Big Ed’s Memorial Golf include the following: C&J Wealth Advisors; Lipsey Morrison Attorneys; Pinnacle Financial Partners; Centrus Energy; Oak Ridge Associated Universities; Enrichment FCU; ORNL FCU; Y-12 FCU; and Exact Tile, Inc.
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 the families 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! You will have a wonderful time on a terrific golf course, and you will be supporting a valuable community resource,” the release said.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
