Attention golfers: there is a virtual golf tournament coming up with the proceeds going towards educational programs in our area.

The Richard A. Perry Memorial Foundation is committed to supporting organizations, educational institutions and individual families in need. Before Perry's passing in 2014, he was a long-time supporter of the United Way who strongly believed in giving back to the community.

Every year the foundation sponsors a golf tournament to raise money for services and programs for all children and the organizations that support them.

Richard Perry's daughter and tournament organizer Cheryl Moura says because of COVID-19, this year's golf tournament will have a different look. The foundation is sponsoring a virtual tournament, with a two-man, best-ball format. There is a $100 fee to play. The tournament begins September 25 and runs through October 2.
