Inaugural Pearls of Wisdom Golf Tournament
On August 26, 2017, SPGCCC welcomed fifty-two golfers for its inaugural Pearls of Wisdom Golf Tournament held at the National Golf Club in Ft. Washington, Maryland. A professional golf clinic was offered for non-golfers and Kelsey Nicole Nelson’s radio show on Fox Sports Radio “Listen In with KNN” was broadcast live from the tournament. Ms. Nelson interviewed SPGCCC President Danaeka Spear and event contributor Fareed Singletary of Heart and Soul Magazine. A dinner buffet and awards ceremony concluded the event. A good time was had by all and SPGCCC was able to raise needed funds to support high school scholarships and community programs
