Hickory – “Tee Time” for the First Annual NAACP Golf Tournament is just under two weeks away. However, there’s still time for you to register yourself or a team of four. Single players can be matched with others to form a team.

The Hickory Branch of the National Association For The Advancement Of Colored People (NAACP) will hold its first annual golf tournament on Saturday October 21, 2023, at the Brushy Mountain Golf Course, 300 Golf Course Lane, Taylorsville, NC 28681.

In addition to its social and recreational outcomes, this event is the Branch’s major fundraiser of the year for which sponsorships of $150.00 and up are being sought. Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the Branch’s educational and scholarship programs which consist of thousand-dollar scholarships being awarded annually to several Hickory area high school graduates. Additionally, via the Equity and Inclusion Task Force we focus on the elimination of large pre-K-12 educational disparities through the support of tutoring and mentoring of students in collaborations with the Hickory Public Schools and local churches.

To register, email contact information to [email protected] or, call Mike at 828-455-0406 or Margaret at 828-238-4430. Registration and sponsorship information and checks should be mailed to Hickory NAACP, P. O. Box 2593, Hickory, NC 28603. Payments may also be made to Hickory NAACP via PayPal.
