The Winston Lake Golf Course will once again host the charity golf tournament for the Winston-Salem Stealers organization. The tournament, organized by The Robinson Group, will take place on October 10 and will start at 9 a.m. sharp.

Alvin Robinson, founder of The Robinson Group, said the tournament is especially needed this year due to the Stealers organization not being able to raise funds for scholarships for their players as they normally do each year.

“We are trying to raise money, because since COVID-19 has come in, they have not been able to have any tournaments to raise money for scholarships,” said Robinson.  

Robinson has been organizing the tournament for 16 years. Three of his children have played for the organization and he says he continues to support the Stealers because they are a class organization that looks out for their players.

“The impact they have had on young women in the sport of basketball has been great,” he said. “They keep the vision of basketball alive for young women as they grow in the sport.”

Dan Motsinger, owner of Cahill & Swain and longtime tournament sponsor, said they want to make sure they are consistent with holding the tournament because they know it is needed, especially during the pandemic.

“It is very important right about now due to the lack of money they (Stealers) have coming in,” said Motsinger about the tournament.  

Robinson and Motsinger said they have made sure they are following all pandemic protocols to ensure the safety of the participants. They are currently still looking for more players to take part in the tournament to maximize the fundraising efforts for the Stealers organization.

Organizers say they are truly thankful to their dedicated sponsors who routinely donate their money, time and services year in and year out. They also wanted to thank the Winston Lake Golf Course for their hospitality.

“It has been a blessing to have the guys riding with us for the last 16 years,” said Robinson. “When we call, there is no hesitation. They actually ask us when we are going to have the tournament, because they know all of the money is going towards the Winston-Salem Stealers.”
