Annual Golf Classic Benefits Special Needs Children in Dallas Co.

From the West Alabama Newsroom–

Dozens of golfers hit the links Wednesday at the Valley Grande Golf Course — to help children in the community with special needs.

The 11th annual Evans Special Benefit Fund Golf Classic — raises money and awareness for agencies that serve special needs children.

Wal Golftournet1020 SotvoCahaba Mental Health — Easter Seals — Selma City Schools — and Dallas County Schools — all benefit from the event.

Former Selma Mayor George Evans started the event — to show special needs children that they are not forgotten. And that the community cares about them.

“So many times they are left out or not necessarily included,” said Evans.

“And I just wanted to let them know that they’re important to us.”

COVID prevented the annual “Fun Day” for kids — from being held at this time.

“Fun Day” is usually held in conjunction with the golf classic — but organizers say they didn’t want to put the children at risk.

They say they’re hope to have the “Fun Day” this spring.
