Here's your chance to play golf and help a wonderful organization based here in South Jersey.

The 12th Annual Ensign John R. Elliott Be a HERO Golf Tournament is coming up May 16th at Sand Barrens Golf Club in Swainton.  Money raised from this event will benefit the HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers, which promotes the importance of having sober designated drivers.

If you golf, there are a several packages available, or, if you are like me and have no golfing skills, you can still attend their dinner and auction.

My wife, who lost a friend to a drunk driver a few years ago, and I both support the HERO Campaign. We both participated in the HERO Campaign's HERO Walk last fall on the Ocean City Boardwalk, where over 800 people raised thousands and thousands of dollars. The HERO Campaign is a tremendous example of how something so positive can develop out of tragedy.
