A Secret Safe Place for Newborns of Tennessee will hold its first annual “Links for Life” golf tournament in memory of Anna C. Irwin on Friday, April 30 at Egwani Farms Golf Club in Rockford. The tournament starts promptly at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start.
The cost is $100 per golfer or $400 per team. The cost includes cart fee, green fees, range balls, goodie bag and lunch catered by Sonny’s Bar-B-Q. There also will be prizes awarded for closest to the pin, longest drive, straightest drive and the overall lowest score. Entry fees are tax deductible per IRS guidelines.
The tournament is in memory of the late Anna C. Irwin, a crime and courts reporter for 30 years at The Daily Times in Maryville. Irwin was an avid supporter and board member for A Secret Safe Place For Newborns of Tennessee for many years, and was an advocate for the passage of Tennessee’s Safe Haven Law.
The mission of A Secret Safe Place for Newborns of Tennessee is to protect the most defenseless among us, newborn infants, by educating and informing women and communities of safe, secret options under the Safe Haven Law. As of February 2010, 35 babies in Tennessee have been saved through Secret Safe Place and the Safe Haven Law.
