&uot;We also are looking for businesses to sponsor &uot;holes,&uot; Children’s Advocacy Center Director Kathy Smith said. &uot;The sponsoring company can register a four-man team and also will receive a banner with their company logo on it at the sponsored hole, dinner for each team member and their name and logo on back of the event T-shirt.&uot;

The co-chairs for the event are law enforcement chaplain Father Fred Lindstrom, FOP Lodge representatives Lamar Grayson, Justin Lovvorn and Mark Harold.

&uot;This is our fifth year holding this tournament,&uot; said Lindstrom. &uot;We always get a tremendous response from the community for this, and we anticipate the same this year. The tournament is a lot of fun for everyone involved, and the proceeds help a wonderful organization – the Children’s Advocacy Center.&uot;

Lindstrom said that all of the proceeds, above operating costs, will be given to the center to fund its various programs.

&uot;We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work with the FOP,&uot; Smith said. &uot;We are grateful for their support of our organization.&uot;
