Broyles backers drive, dine
The second annual Drive and Dine for Dementia golf tournament and dinner to benefit the Frank & Barbara Broyles Foundation is set for July 14 at Paradise Valley Golf and Athletic Club in Fayetteville and the Fayetteville Town Center.
Linda Vigil, administration director, said proceeds from the fundraiser “allow the Broyles Foundation to provide support groups, individual coaching, referral services, resource materials, training and advocacy at no cost to Alzheimer’s caregivers in crisis.”
Registration for the two-flight golf tournament will begin at 6:30 a.m. with shotgun starts at 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Herman’s Ribhouse will serve lunch.
That evening’s dinner will begin with a “green carpet” reception with hors d’oeuvres, drinks and silent auction. David Basil will serve as the master of ceremonies, and the program will feature the presentation of the Broyles Foundation Championship green
jackets to members of the day’s winning golf team.
Other awards will be presented for closest to the pin, putt for cash and the longest drive.
The evening will conclude with dessert and drinks on the terrace and live music from Joe Giles & the Homewreckers.
