Monday, July 14 will be a big day for Lynn Wheeler, wife of the head of the Clayton State University Music Department, Dr. Douglas Wheeler.
That’s the day that the Wheeler’s church, Covenant Presbyterian Church in Fayetteville, Ga., will be hosting the Lynn Wheeler Benefit Golf Tournament at Eagle’s Brooke County Club in Locust Grove, Ga. The personification of determination and courage, Lynn Wheeler was diagnosed with cancer in February 2005. She went into remission in September of that same year, only to suffer a serious spinal injury in an auto accident on Christmas Day, 2005, an accident that has confined her to a wheelchair and breathing with the help of a respirator.
Undaunted, the Wheelers have remained strong members of Covenant Presbyterian, and Lynn continues to serve in the church’s children’s ministry and to teach piano. The church’s fund raising golf tournament for the Wheelers will feature a clinic by former PGA touring professional Greg Powers, lunch provided by Chick-Fil-A, door prizes, raffles, longest drive and closest to the pin contests, and a new 2008 Ford, courtesy of Allan Vigil Ford, for a hole-in-one.
The Lynn Wheeler Benefit Golf Tournament is set up for four-person teams in a Ft. Lauderdale format with a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. Single players may register for $95. Four person teams may register for $380.
For more information on the tournament, call Joseph Starr at (678) 637-2731 or Jack Stillman at (678) 471-1526.
