Fred Fletcher Memorial Golf Tournament Helps Fund Cancer Research

Several CBC’ers teed up on Monday, May 7th, to raise money for the American Cancer Society (ACS). The second annual Fred Fletcher Memorial Golf Classic, named for CBC’s former President, took place on the greens at Wakefield Plantation. The event also included a pre-tournament reception and live silent auction at Michael Dean’s Wood Oven & Bar on Sunday, May 6.

The tournament raised about $30,000 to fund to the fight against skin cancer. Fletcher himself died of cancer in January of last year. According to ACS, “Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. According to current estimates, 40% to 50% of Americans who live to age 65 will have skin cancer at least once.”

CBC sponsored the event, as did WRAL-FM/MIX 101.5. The company entered one team of four: Senior VP of Finance John Brennan, VP of HD John Greene, Corporate Secretary Scottie Stephenson, and Corporate Controller Whit Neville.

The foursome teed off at 8:00am with half of the field of 150 golfers; the other half teed at 1:30pm. The group joined for a buffet luncheon in the clubhouse.

Fletcher served as the President of CBC for ten years. Known as the “Fairy Tale Man,” Fletcher headlined many shows on WRAL-FM and WRAL-TV, including his signature series “Tempus Fugit” (Time Flies). Fletcher used his energy and spirit to further many community organizations, especially Raleigh Parks and Recreation.
