More than 100 golfers are lined up and ready to hit the links for the 9th Annual Dental Foundation of North Carolina, Inc. Golf Tournament. The 2001 outing was held Friday, June 15 at Chapel Hill Country Club under threatening skies. This year’s gift of a DFNC golf umbrella came in handy as players slogged through a rain shower of about 30 minutes. All proceeds from the tournament go toward the School’s student activities fund.

Flight B net score champion was the American Student Dental Association (ASDA) team of (left to right) Jason Herring, Jim Casey, Lekecia McGee and Rob Miller. After completing their round, Casey, McGee and Miller raced back to Tarrson Hall to see patients in the student clinics, while Herring accepted the team’s prizes ($100 gift certificates for the Chapel Hill Country Club Pro Shop). ASDA also received a $2,000 grant from the proceeds from the DFNC Golf Tournament. The Student National Dental Association (SNDA) and American Dental Education Association (ADEA) each received $1,000 grants.
