CULLMAN, Ala. – After a successful inaugural tournament last year, The Crimson Ladies of Cullman are gearing up for their second annual charity golf tournament. This year’s tournament will be held at Cross Creek Golf Course in Hanceville and registration opens up at 7 a.m. before a shotgun start at 8. The cost for an individual golfer is $60, the team rate is $180, and proceeds will be going to the Nick’s Kids Foundation.
The Nick’s Kids Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness and resources for deserving organizations throughout the state of Alabama and Southeast. It’s the official charity of the Nick Saban family. Nick and Terry Saban invest their time hosting luncheons, golf tournaments scrimmages and other events to benefit the cause. They are also active in the annual Fall Giveaway Luncheon, which serves to distribute grants to support children, family, teacher and student causes.
Your tournament entry fee will include green fees and a cart, range balls, a breakfast biscuit and a lunch sandwich. Prizes will be awarded to first place, second place and a randomly-drawn place, as well as long-drive winners and closest-to-the-pin contest winners.
The tournament will also feature a special guest, former Crimson Tide running back Siran Stacy. Stacy and his family were struck by a drunk driver in November of 2007, killing his wife Ellen and his children Lequisa, Bronson, Sydney and Ellie Ann-Marie. Stacy and his daughter Shelly were the only survivors of the accident. After the life-changing tragedy, Stacy began working in ministry in 2008 and was ordained as a minister in 2009. Stacy now works as an evangelist and motivational speaker, traveling the world and speaking to people who need help getting through tough situations like his. After participating in Saturday’s tournament, Stacy will be speaking to the congregation at Etha Baptist Church Sunday morning at 10:30 to share his story.
