Country star Tracy Lawrence is to hold his fifteenth annual charity golf tournament next week.
Proceeds from the tournament – to be held at the Texarkana Golf Ranch in Texarkana, Texas, on Monday, April 20 – will go to the Tracy Lawrence Foundation.
“It’s so important to me to give back to the community where I spent my childhood… where my life took shape,” said Lawrence. “I’m in a place in my life where I can help friends, families and communities mold the future of others and that’s a wonderful gift to give.”
The Tracy Lawrence Foundation positively influences and improves hundreds of thousands of residents’ lives and has donated more than $1 million to over 35 communities and civic groups in and around Foreman, Arkansas, over the last 14 years. During that time, the foundation has assembled and equipped a computer lab for Tracy’s alma mater, Foreman High School; constructed an outdoor pavilion for Watersprings Ranch, a home for abused and neglected children dedicated to restoring their childhood; been an active, repeat sponsor for the Alzheimer’s Walk in Texarkana (Tracy is also the national spokesperson for the Alzheimer's Association); sponsored the local CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) which places abandoned and abused children with foster parents; funded two scholarships to assist with housing, food, books and tuition expenses for students at Texarkana College and Southern Arkansas University; and provided funding for books at Foreman Public Library.
The Texarkana Golf Ranch is located at 7401 Scott Wright Road, Texarkana. Golf fee is $135 per person or $500 per team (4 persons). People interested in pre-registration can contact the Tracy Lawrence Fund at 870-542-7557 or register on the day at the Texarkana Golf Ranch. On-site registration begins at 10:30AM; Tee off is 12 Noon.
