National MS Society Receives $10k from Fonville Morisey Realty's Annual Golf Tourney

RALEIGH, N.C. — The National MS Society was presented with a $10,000 donation at the conclusion of the 12th Annual Fonville Morisey Realty Charity Golf Tournament. The tournament, held at Wildwood Green Golf Club, enabled more than 110 sales associates and employees the opportunity to give back to the local community. Throughout the golf tournament’s 12 years, Fonville Morisey has raised more than $135,000 for community organizations.

Golfers enjoyed 18 holes of golf, lunch, course prizes and a raffle. The post-golf dinner was held in Wildwood’s pavilion, and the meal was catered by Ron’s Barn of Coats, N.C.

Major sponsors included American Home Shield; MGIC; Long & Foster Insurance; Hofer Appraisal Group; BB&T; Wyrick, Robbins, Yates & Ponton, LLP; Chicago Title; Harris Appraisal Service; and Clifton & Singer, LLP. Other sponsors included RMIC; Walter Chapman Appraisal Center; Arges Law Firm, P.C.; Glover Printing, Inc.; Stokes Appraisal Service; Franklin American Mortgage; Gwynn & Edwards, PA; Homes and Land; News & Observer; The Umstead Hotel and Spa; Embassy Suites; North Raleigh Hilton; Time Warner; and Bond Magazines.

Fonville Morisey Realty, a Long and Foster Company, has served the greater Triangle area for 35 years.

MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn’t. Each year, through a home office and 50-state network of chapters, the society devotes approximately $125 million to programs and services that enhance more than one million lives. In 2007, the society invested more than $46 million to support 440 research projects around the world.

This annual golf tournament funds important projects in Raleigh. This year's donation benefits the National MS Society and the work it does in improving the lives of people suffering with MS. Research dollars are still needed to help find a cure — a person is diagnosed with MS every hour in the United States. More than 400,000 people are affected in the U. S. alone. MS stops the flow of information from the brain to the body, which makes it hard or impossible for people to move.
