Goldstein Charity Golf Tourney tees off Friday to support two area charities
ANDERSON, SC (Oct. 13, 2014) – Clemson Eye is pleased to again be a sponsor of this year’s Goldstein Charity Golf Tournament on Friday, October 17.
This is the 10th year for the event, which benefits two local charities: Helen’s Hugs works with Eden Farms therapeutic horseback riding for special needs children; The Extra Bases Foundation is a project of Southern Wesleyan University that provides books to elementary schools to encourage reading among all students.
“We’ve supported this local cause since its inception. Our two daughters went to school with Helen; we knew her and her family. We also know Paul Goldstein, who organizes the annual Goldstein Golf Tournament to support it. Clemson Eye sponsors many worthwhile local charities, but this one is particularly close to our hearts,” says Dr. Joseph Parisi, Chief Ophthalmologist and Medical Director of Clemson Eye.
Clemson Eye is an event sponsor, providing goody bags and sponsoring the putting contest. The winner will get 50 percent off a Lasik procedure, a $2500 value.
Helen’s Hugs was founded to honor the life and interests of Helen Corontzes, who died in 2006 following a car accident.
The event will be held at the Brookstone Meadows Golf Club. The putting contest starts and 11 a.m. and a shotgun start goes off at noon. Interested players can get information on Facebook (http://goo.gl/obGubn) or call Goldstein at 864-650-1183.
