Thank you so much to everyone who has signed up to participate in the golf outing. Your support is much appreciated. If you have not signed up yet, there are still open spots, so please feel free to sign up. The date of the event is April 2 at Finley Golf Course in Chapel Hill, located at 500 Finley Golf Course Rd, Chapel Hill, NC 27514. The deadline to sign up is March 25. We ask all golfers to arrive 30 minutes before their tee time in order to pay.

Many people have asked if we are raising money and, if so, how to donate. To answer that question, we will be raising money for the Luke Garrison Foundation. The Foundation is not yet qualified for tax-deductible donations. Therefore, a fund has been established at the Community Foundation of Western NC to receive donations in the meantime. Donations to this fund are tax-deductible. Checks for tax-deductible donations ONLY should be written to “CFWNC”, with “The Luke Garrison Fund” in the memo line.

Once the Luke Garrison Foundation is established, these donated funds will be moved over to the Foundation. Checks can be mailed to 4 Vanderbilt Park Drive, Suite 300, Asheville, NC 28803. We encourage anyone who wants to make a donation, whether you are playing in the tournament or unable to make it, to donate through this fund. We greatly appreciate any contribution that you can make.

The day of the tournament, we ask that you pay for your golf inside the pro shop at Finley. Money paid to participate in the golf tournament will NOT be tax deductible. The money that is paid at the pro shop covers the cost of playing at Finley and does not go towards the Luke Garrison Foundation. It is $55 for students and $70 for non-students.

Furthermore, I have been told that you can book hotel rooms at the Hampton Inn for a cheaper rate than the block of nine rooms I mentioned in my first email. If you book your room through the website and join Hilton Honors, which is free, you can get a room with two queens for $152 a night.

Lastly, we are set for a bar tab at West End Wine Bar on Friday, April 1from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. After the outing on April 2, we want to invite everyone to get together at the Phi Delt house on 304 South Columbia Street. This will be an opportunity for everyone to catch up, share memories about Luke and see the new renovations to the house.

Thank you everyone for your support and participation, it means a lot. I hope to see you April 1-2!
