On May 6, 2019, Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services (JFBHS) was pleased to host the 24th annual Go Golfing for the Kids tournament at The Golf Club at The Highlands.  Proceeds from this year’s event will go toward purchasing molded, high-impact, fire-retardant polyethylene bedroom furniture for our cottages.  According to the manufacturer, the furniture is “solid as a rock, yet features seamless construction with rounded corners for added safety and security. Each piece can be easily sanitized.”

Following a lunch provided by Hardees, nineteen teams from all over Virginia and parts of North Carolina enjoyed a beautiful day on the links.  Following play, the golfers returned to The Reserve at the Highlands to enjoy the awards dinner and find out who won the various raffle prizes donated by a number of restaurants, museums, jewelry stores, and more.  In addition, having the highest bid meant that one golfer took home a gas smoker donated by Parker Oil, and another took home the prize of a week-long vacation at Kill Devil Hills donated by a former JFBHS director of education.

Without the support of a number of sponsors, this tournament would not have been possible.  JFBHS is tremendously grateful to tournament sponsor Boddie-Noell Enterprises, presenting sponsor Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial, and awards dinner sponsor Jones LTC Pharmacy. Additional sponsors were Old Point Trust, Virginia South Psychiatric & Family Services, ITA International, WellsColeman, Kim & Steve Winston, Tod Balsbaugh, Partlow Insurance Agency, Inc., Parker Oil & Propane, Boyd Chevrolet, Diamond Springs, Wilson Clary & Associates, Virginia Automobile Dealers Association, The Wilton Companies, Commonwealth Exterminators, Eric Thompson & Family, and Old Dominion Landscapes, LLC.

Planning has already begun for the 25th anniversary tournament to be held in May 2020, and all are invited to sign up to play.  More details will be available at a later date.
