The Boys Home of the South annual golf tournament raised $91,618. Over the last ten years, the tournament raised over $700,000. The 35th annual golf tournament was held Monday, September 26 at River Falls Plantation in Duncan.
All proceeds from the benefit will go to the boy’s age 6-18 years at the Boys Home of the South. The Boys Home is a non-profit group home located on 127 acres in Southern Greenville County. The boys have been abandoned, abused, neglected or orphaned. They receive therapy, education, recreation and care while at the Boys Home. Additionally, the Boys Home works with families to try and reunite or keep them together.
A special guest, Butch Lumpkin was at the tournament raising money on a game hole. Lumpkin was born with this condition due to a drug called Thalidomide that was used in the 1950’s and 1960’s to help with morning sickness.
He has been featured on the golf channel several times and is quite an inspiration to all that see him.
“What excited me about this tournament is the total net proceeds go directly for the boys benefit at the Boys Home of the South.” Ralph Kellar, CPA, Shareholder, Elliott Davis LLC and on the golf committee.
