On Saturday, August 9, the CCCR attended and sponsored a golf team at the Lori North Memorial Golf Tournament in memory of Lori, who lost her battle with colon cancer last summer.  The tournament was organized by Lori’s husband Joe North, and their daughter Hope Gold.  The CCCR team consisted of Frank Berger, Justin Hulme, and colon cancer survivors Shane Caldwell and David Wright.  One hundred and thirty golfers came out despite heavy rains to make this event a success.  Proceeds from the tournament will be donated to the CCCR and to Palmetto Animal Assisted Life Services (PAALS).
