Firefighters host golf tournament to help a co-worker's family

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hattiesburg Firefighters held their first annual benefit golf tournament Saturday at Shadow Ridge Golf Course. The tournament raised money to benefit firefighter Spencer Taylor and his family.

Spencer Taylor and his wife's daughter, Selah, was born with Nagers Syndrome, a rare disorder. As a result, Spencer's wife had to quit her job in order to provide around the clock care for Selah. Selah's first surgery is soon, and the money raised through the tournament will go towards helping the Taylor family.
