Winston Salem teenagers support veterans through golf

Five local high school students use the game of golf to give something back. Rhodes Baker, Robert Gefaell, Kyle Haas, Preston Howe and Fisher Kennedy all make up the Old Town 5 Boys golf group, whose goal is to raise funds to support veterans. The group has partnered with two veterans to help them participate in the PGA REACH Carolinas 100 Holes For Hope fundraiser. “You do so much for us and have served our country. We’re trying to give them back, but it’s obviously nothing like what they did for us, ”said Kennedy. The aim is to play a total of 100 holes between October 1st and November 11th. All proceeds go to programs that improve the lives of veterans by helping them network and play golf. In 2020, The Old Town 5 raised $ 18,000 and entered the PGA Championship in Kiawah, South Carolina. This year they hope to top that. “Our starting target is $ 25,000 this year. I wanted to lift it up a bit, but mom said that was a good place to start. We want to beat that, ”said Kennedy. The Old Town 5 Boys accept lump-sum donations or donations on a hole-by-hole basis.
