The 14th annual Triangle Golf Challenge reception benefiting Communities In Schools of Durham was held in June at the Croasdaile Country Club. Sherrod Banks, president of The Banks Foundation, and the N.C. Central University Department of Athletics hosted the reception, which was sponsored by “The Sports Shop,” a radio show that stars DJs Erroll Reese and Kevin “KMac” McClendon. The live auction featured prizes that included a N.C. Central University basketball experience with LeVelle Moton, a UNC basketball experience with Phil Ford and a one-week vacation to Snowshoe, West Virginia. The next day, golfers hit the links to compete in a tournament, which benefited Communities In Schools as well as The Banks Foundation. More than $27,000 was raised for Communities In Schools, an organization that specializes in surrounding students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school, graduate on time and succeed in life.
