      Southwest Georgians teed off for charity

      Each team donated $300 to play

      Golfers spent the day driving and putting their way around the River Pointe Golf Course. About 75 golfers took part in the tournament.

      The American Cancer Society raised about $5,000 at the Tournament for Hope. Many golfers, including Glenn Johnson, say it was more than just a game for them. "I lost my left kidney and then it metastasized and went to my right lung and I lost the middle lobe of my right lung," says Johnson.

      Glenn Johnson was diagnosed with renal cancer 20 years ago. His wife Kim says her husband wasn't expected to live very long. Organizers say 100% of the money raised at the tournament goes right back to patients.

      You can go to the American Cancer Society's website to find more information on events and how to donate.
