TRUSSVILLE, AL – The annual Toby Banks Benefit golf tournament was June 18th at the Trussville Country Club. This was our 10th anniversary and the event was a great success. We had 18 teams which was a record. The weather was perfect and everyone had a good time. We had teams that have participated in this event all ten years.
The highlight of the day was when the two 2011 SpeechEasy recipients spoke. Jonathan Harris and Michael Mearns thanked all the golfers for allowing them the opportunity to have the SpeechEasy device, and it forever changing their lives. This was an emotional time for all that attended the awards dinner.
This is what this tournament is all about, raising money to provide SpeechEasy devices to deserving people that have problems with stuttering. So, if you know of anyone that this device might help, contact the Foundation: Donny Fulmer-699-7286; Earline Banks-699-8805; Gary Anderson-699-2605; Ed Shaw-699-3232 or Tammy Womble-966-2042 for more information.
The Foundation members would like to thank all that participated in this year’s event either through providing door prizes; donations; hole sponsors; team players and sponsors; cooking hotdogs or cleaning up. All are very important for the tournament being the success each year. Thanks to the Herald of Alabama for advertising for us and the articles about the recipients, not only does this help the event each year, but it brings awareness to the issues of stuttering.Winners:
