(Charlottesville, VA) – The 4th Annual Mac McDonald Celebrity Golf Invitational, played at Birdwood Golf Course in Charlottesville, raised nearly $81,000 for the University of Virginia’s Children’s Medical Center this past Monday.

“This brings the four year total to over $200,000,” reported the Voice of the Cavaliers, Mac McDonald. “The committee, the volunteers, and the sponsors have been so special and supportive. I have hundreds of people to thank for making this all possible.”

The tournament, which benefits the Children’s Medical Center every year, is a community project by Eure Communications, home of radio stations WINA AM 1070, Z-95, WQMZ and 3WV 97.5FM.

“We have exceeded our goal every year,” said Michelle Connor, the tournament’s organizer. “The MMI becomes a bigger and better event every year and we couldn’t be happier. We have played a major role in helping the hospital reach its yearly goal.”

Daniel Deane, a youngster from Madison Heights, Virginia, was selected as this year’s “Children’s Medical Center Comeback Kid of the Year” and Jay Bilas of ESPN was voted the tournament’s “Celebrity of the Year.”
