GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) – A local golf tournament raised more than $ 35,000 to help children with cancer and their families.
Delcor of Greenville handed Riley’s army a check for $ 35,705 on Thursday.
Organizers raised money through the ‘Teed off at Cancer Golf Tournament’. They held the tournament at the Greenville Country Club in April.
Riley’s Army is a nonprofit organization that provides financial and emotional support to families in East Carolina while their child fights cancer.
Delcor employee Leah Osborne said, “It’s real, and it’s something that affects not only adults, but children as well. And not just them, but their families too. “
The tournament was canceled during the COVID-19 pandemic last year, but organizers say they are making it an annual tradition.
