Jim Carr golf tourney takes place Aug. 24

WOONSOCKET – The 26th annual Woonsocket Little League Jim Carr Memorial Jimmy Fund golf tourney will return to Triggs Country Club in Providence on Saturday, Aug. 24, with registration beginning at 6:30 a.m. and play starting at 8 a.m.

The golf tournament, which is the main charity event that is sponsored by the Woonsocket Little League, was established in the memory of Jim Carr, a longtime Little League manager and volunteer who passed away after battling cancer.

Over the past 25 years, the tournament has raised a total of $284,000, with all the proceeds going to the Jimmy Fund.

A post-event barbecue is scheduled to start immediately after the tournament. The cost for a foursome is $540, and the tournament is also currently in need of sponsors and gifts that can be used as prizes or raffle items. Tee and green sponsorships, at $125 each, are also available.

Gerry Forget is returning as the tourney’s chairman, and any business or individual who would like to enter a foursome, donate prizes, sponsor a hole, or make a cash donation should contact Forget at 75 Larch St., Woonsocket, R.I. 02895 or via email at beach_pete@hotmail.com or phone at 401-486-5287.
