Local heroes take it to the course for a cause


Along with serving, protecting and saving lives, many heroes as well as supporters took it to the course for a cause early Saturday.

The Hattiesburg Police and Fire Association switched their uniforms for a pair of shorts and polo, and all to help Hattiesburg Fireman, Spencer Taylor's 13-month daughter who was born without a lower jaw.

"We felt it was real important to host the tournament for Hattiesburg Police and Fire Association cause they put their lives in danger for us every day," says General Manager to Shadow Ridge Golf Course Judd Brewer. "I think they're a lot like what the military does for us and it's benefiting a good cause for them cause the money that they raise goes towards someone in the department or someone in their association."

By hosting a golf tournament, many friends, co-workers and several businesses came out to support the cause.

"We're out here supporting the Hattiesburg police and fire departments in the charity golf tournament to help those that are in need that have been struck by any kind of tragedy that has happened to them personally," says Academy Sports and Outdoors Store Director Louis Tenney.

The Police and Fire Association take the time out to host different events in the community to raise money to benefit policeman an fireman in need of help in the Hattiesburg area.

Money raised goes to Spencer Taylor's daughter so that she can be able to go to Chicago and have surgery.
