The Twin City Jazz, Winston-Salem Stealers and the Triad Trackers were blessed with another successful fundraising golf tournament.  The tournament was held at the Meadowlands golf course on Aug. 25.

This was the ninth annual tournament for the organizations. Seventeen teams participated in the event.  The winning team was from Forbush High School.  The organizers also handed out several door and raffle ticket prizes to the participants.

The proceeds from the tournament help fund the three organizations throughout the year.  Brian Robinson, head coach for all three organizations, says the tournament “continues to get better and better every year.”

“This tournament was a huge success and the people really turned out on our behalf,” said Alvin Robinson, tournament organizer.  “As an organizer, it’s always great to see people smiling as they are leaving.

“This year we held the tournament in honor of Carl Russell, my father Eugene Robinson and my uncle Charles Robinson.”

Brian Robinson credited Alvin Robinson for all of his hard work in putting the tournament together and gathering sponsors to assist with the cost.

“It’s amazing and I am glad that so many people want to come out and help our Stealers, Trackers and Jazz programs,” coach Robinson said.  “Anything helps a kid that can’t afford to play, play.  The support has been great, and I am really thankful to all of our sponsors.”

According to coach Robinson, Alvin Robinson likes to move the golf tournament around to different courses to give the participants a nice chance of scenery.

“Alvin likes to move it around year after year so I am sure next year will be somewhere different,” he said.  “The three or four places we have been over the last few years have been great, so I am looking forward to what he [Robinson] has in store.”
