McGhee-Tyson ANGB, TN --
The McGhee Tyson ANGB Golf League recently raised and donated $775 for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Working in concert with Lambert Acres Golf Club Manager Nick Berrong, who had donated a free round of golf to the cause, golf league members held a "closest to the pin" competition. People who donated to the cause were given a pink ribbon.
Golf league members raised $375 which was matched and then exceeded by Lambert Acres for the total of $775. The money was donated in the name of Stacy Barker, a breast cancer survivor and the wife of Staff Sgt. Billy Barker, a traffic management specialist for the 134 LRS.
Golf league members want to express their sincere thanks to the Lambert Acres Golf Club, and especially to Nick Berrong, for participating with them to raise money for this worthy cause. The golf league normally plays every other Monday at Lambert Acres which is located at 3402 Tuckaleechee Pike, one half-mile off U.S. Hwy 321 in south Maryville.
