STAFF REPORTS

The third annual Wesberry Golf Classic was recently held at Spring Creek Ranch.

The event benefits SRVS and more than 1,000 people with disabilities. It grossed more than $39,000 in support of SRVS’ programs, ranging from employment and community living, to children’s services and elder care. SRVS is the largest comprehensive service provider in Tennessee and one of the largest private employers in Memphis with more than 900 employees.

The golf tournament was comprised of a four-person scramble and 23 teams participated. Anne Wesberry welcomed the golfers as they headed out to the exclusive golf course in Collierville.

The tournament is named in memory of her husband, Dr. Fred Wesberry, who was a long-time supporter of SRVS and who treated persons supported at SRVS through his dental practice.

Chef Ernie Mellor from Hog Wild provided a barbecue lunch for the golfers and a post game awards reception was held at the club house. Two flights of three place teams were organized and the first place, first flight champions are Charlie Shoaf, Brian Rimer, Timmy Hooper and Ryan Finches.
