NFL Alumni Tournament raises $156k for local charities

By  | 

POTTSBORO, Tex -- Local charities benefited from proceeds raised at the NFL Alumni Tournament Golf Classic held at the Tanglewood Resort back in May.

Donnie Anderson, one of the founders, helped present the $156,000-check on Tuesday at Tangelewood to the Sherman Boys and Girls Club, Crisis Center and several others charities.

"I think it's just going to grow and get better everybody that comes here, the ex-athletes and what we call celebrities, they love it here," Anderson said.

Former Dallas Cowboys Don Maynard and Billy Joe Dupree showed up last year.

Anderson says their goal next year is to raise even more money.
