The Piedmont Furniture Club reported that it held its 27th annual golf tournament on August 21, 2013 at a new location – Willow Creek Golf Course, High Point NC.

Proceeds from the tournament went to benefit Brenner Children’s Hospital – Cancer Research. This year’s donation was made in honor of Harold Hart, furniture distributor and owner of Hart Furniture in Siler City, NC. The Piedmont Furniture Club honored Harold for his longevity in the furniture industry, particularly since his diagnosis with Leukemia in December of 2012. Many participants, as well as those who could not attend the tournament, made additional contributions to Brenner’s Cancer Research. Harold was unable to attend, so close friend Maurice Pleasants spoke on his condition and expressed Harold’s gratitude for honoring him at their event.

Dr. Thomas McLean, MD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Wake Forest University and Principal Investigator for the Children’s Oncology Group and Erin McCloskey, Events Coordinator for Brenner Children’s Hospital attended the tournament and expressed their gratitude for the donation to children’s cancer research. Dr. McLean also spoke at the Piedmont Furniture Club’s inaugural Golf Tournament & Charity Drive in 2011 to benefit Brenner Children’s Hospital in honor of Fred and Jeff Murrow of Murrows Trucking. Our 2012 honoree was O’Connor DesVergers, daughter of Madeline and Kevin O’Connor of Samson Marketing.

The tournament itself was a success with 24 teams and gracious sponsoring partners, the International Market Centers (IMC), Murrow’s Transfer, Zenith Global Logistics, Planned Furniture Promotions, SDJ Trucking, Boyles Furniture & Rugs, and BFI Inc., to name a few. “With the third year of incorporating Brenner Children’s Hospital as the Piedmont Furniture Club’s designated golf charity, we see how honoring our friends and colleagues who have or still are battling cancer, can bring an industry together. We are excited to be able to provide the platform for that purpose. ” notes Ray Haislip, Virginia/Carolinas HFRA President.
