Golf tournament to benefit Children’s Advocacy Center

FALL RIVER — The Children’s Advocacy Center of Bristol County is looking for individuals, teams and spon-sors for its fourth annual charity golf tournament, Eagles and Birdies for You...Hope and Healing for Children.

The event will be held Monday, Oct. 4 at Fall River Country Club, 4232 N. Main St., Fall River, MA.

More than 7,500 children have come through the Children’s Advocacy Center of Bristol County since it opened its doors in 2007. The center serves hundreds of Bristol County children who are victims of child abuse and as-sociated trauma.

The agency is raising money to enable it to expand to serve the growing need for services for those children and their families. That need is growing as a result of increased stress resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as job losses and lengthy periods of isolation.

Individual golfers can play in the tournament for $195, and foursomes for $750. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. prior to a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Registration also will include a light lunch, course refreshments and give-aways, plus a BBQ dinner.
