Twenty golf teams gathered at Timber Lakes Golf Course on Sept. 24 and helped to raise $18,860 for Bob’s scholarship fund. Some golfers were there to compete and some just for the fun, comraderie, to remember Bob, and a “good cause”. Bob’s family was present for the event, including sister, Carol Harrison (North Carolina) and brothers Roger Price (Hillsboro) and Jerry and Keri Price (Washington), nieces Theresa Kabel, (Florida), Crissi Harrison and Audra Harrison (North Carolina).
