Another Great Day For Charity
The 21st Annual Randy Owen Golf Tournament, held Saturday at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Florence, Alabama, not only drew music artists such as Angela Hacker, David St Romain, James LeBlanc and Megan Mullins but also attracted baseball Hall Of Famers Johnny Bench and Gaylord Perry. The MuzikMafia's Two-Foot Fred was on hand to keep golfers refreshed with drinks and cigars.
The annual tourney is played on a different course in Alabama each year and has raised over $2 million for children in the Alabama Sheriffs' Youth Ranches. There are four ranches across the state of Alabama, three of which house boys and one that houses girls. Each ranch is home to 10 children between the ages of 6 and 18, and, in the organization's 40-year history, it has served more than 3,000 kids.
"When the man calls, I'm there," Johnny Bench said told Florence's Times Daily newspaper as he waited outside the clubhouse for his tee time. "It's been 22 years since the first time I heard Alabama perform, and that was when I was in Tampa, Fla. Needless to say, their music is special."
