Tournament to help family of deceased

Webster Parish golfers are invited to take part in a tournament to honor the memory of a Claiborne Parish man who died recently.

The Chris Bailey Memorial Golf Tournament and Auction will be taking place next Saturday, May 27, at the Homer Golf Course.

Bailey passed in a tragic airplane accident last month.

Due to the overwhelming response and number of registrations, the board decided to expand the allowed number of teams from 54 to 66 (2 man teams). Tee times will be at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Family and friends are asking the public to please come out and support and honor the Bailey family. Even if attendees are not participating in the golf tournament there will be plenty other ways to contribute to the success of this event.

They will have fish and shrimp plate lunches available, along with all of the fixings, catered by Ben Christmas and donated by KLX (Bubba Armstrong, Philip Prince and Baker Hughes). They will also have hamburger plates donated by Cornerstone Church and Gibsland Bank and Trust and chicken plates by Alan Fanning.

While you are chowing down check out the silent and live auctions that will be held throughout the day. They will be auctioning off a fish cooker, crawfish cooker, guns, boat motor, jewelry and more. There will also be t-shirts and hats available to purchase. 

All proceeds that are raised from the tournament and the fundraiser will be donated directly to the family. 

For donations, questions or concerns please reach out to John Tinsley at 318-927-9323.
