Press release:

Terry Hills Golf Course, located on Clinton Street Road in Batavia, will be participating in a community event to benefit the families of service men and women.

All weekend long, Terry Hills will be donating a portion of our proceeds from Greens Fees to the Folds of Honor organization, as a participant in Patriot Golf Day. This organization provides educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our nation. In one year alone for Patriot Golf Day, we were able to raise $4,000!

This is such a GREAT opportunity for golfers to get their rounds in this weekend but in doing so, help raise money for those in need!

Jim Kelly present in spirit at 28th annual charity tournament at Terry Hills

Jim Kelly wasn't at Terry Hills today for the 28th annual charity tournament that carries his name because he's weakened by chemotherapy and radiation treatment for cancer.

At the start of the tournament his brother Dan had his head shaved both to honor his brother and to raise money for the Kelly for Kids Foundation. He challenged all of the golfers -- donors, athletes and celebrities to follow his example and over the course of the day, many of them did. (Cutting his hair, above, Michelle Napierala).

The Hall of Fame quarterback may not have been at his event this year, but he was there in spirit. Blue "Kelly Tough" T-shirts were everywhere and friends, such as ESPN broadcaster Chris Berman, spoke of Kelly's toughness and said that toughness is why he'll beat cancer and be back at Terry Hills next year to host his tournament. 

Former Bill and CBS Sports broadcaster Steve Tasker said much the same thing.

“We miss Jim being here,” he said, “but at the same token, it’s because of Jim’s presence and the quality of this event and what this event means – this is more than just a bunch of guys getting together for another event; this is like a reunion, not just a team reunion, but a family reunion for a lot of guys who’ve known each other for a couple of decades. The tournament’s been going on for 28 years and these guys are lifelong friends. The fact that Jim can’t be here today won’t change that.”
