Golf Classic Bigger Than Ever

August 24, 2012

Exciting! is the best word to describe the way the 2012 Bill Warner Sr. Memorial Charity Golf Classic is coming together.  We have more golfers, more raffle prizes, and at this writing the silent auction items were still growing bigger and better. 


nullSilent Auction

One main prize feature of this year’s event is the silent auction. So many wonderful prizes have been donated we had to expand our opportunity for more potential winners.


Some of the silent auction prizes include:

  • Golf for 3 at private club, Shoal Creek. in Birmingham, Alabama.  Shoal Creek is one of Golf Digest’s top courses for 2012.  Guests will stay in the exclusive Nicklaus Cottage.  Plus one full set of Cleveland Clubs with bag.
