The James Perry Fundraiser Golf Tournament was held on Friday, April 9th at the Riverwood Golf Club in Clayton, NC. Living Arts College (LAC) was represented by a contingency of three golfers: Gordon Russell, Director of Education, Craig Brandwynne, Audio Co-Program Coordinator, and Cole Russing, Digital Filmmaking Instructor.
The event was organized by Tommy Ballard of Rex Hospital to help with the expense of James Perry’s upcoming kidney transplant. James could not be present, however, his son and daughter read a statement on his behalf expressing his tremendous appreciation to all who participated. The tournament was a great success. Living Arts College’s team finished with a four over par in the face of cold, windy, and wet weather conditions on the front nine. By the end of the 18 holes the skies had cleared and everyone sat down for a BBQ lunch.
