The annual fundraisers for Bladen We Care have been cancelled, according to D.M. (Mac) Campbell Jr., chairman of the committee. The events are usually held in April.
Campbell (pictured above), in a message to board members, said, “after a lengthy discussion with vendors and staff, due to many unknowns related to availability of golf courses, and attempting to set a date with no competition, the annual Byron Gooden fundraiser will be postponed until 2022.” It is the second time in as many years fundraising activities have been postponed.
“We continue to receive memorials and gifts plus a recent check from Elizabethtown Presbyterian for $5,000 that will allow our mission to carry on, maybe not with as many donations as in the past,” Campbell said. “We will continue support to Bladen Community College, Carolina Crossroads and Bladen Baptist Association, as in the past, in addition to individual request.”
Bladen We Care golf tournament and other related fundraising efforts have been in operation for over 30 years. A date in the spring of 2022 will be announced at a later time.
