For five years running, Lee Company’s Annual Golf Tournament benefiting Special Olympics TN Williamson County has been one of our pinnacle events. This year had its share of high fives, long drives, great food, and fellowship.
“As a local organization that provides the opportunity for those with intellectual disabilities to excel in 13 different sports, it is an honor to have Lee Company do so much for us through this golf outing,” said Jon Stephenson, Area Director. “We are beyond blessed to have them along with all the sponsors and golfers support Special Olympics TN Williamson County.”
With the help of sponsors, friends, and customers, more than $216,000 has been raised over the past five years for this organization that is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

COMING TOGETHER FOR A CAUSE
Ten Special Olympics athletes joined this year’s event, and everyone enjoyed meeting the athletes and hearing their stories. Special Olympics of Williamson County also shared that the funds raised at the tournament will help send two swimmers, one bowler and one powerlifter to the 2018 USA Games in Seattle and one swimmer to the 2019 World Games in Abu Dhabi!
The 17th hole at the Governors Club in Brentwood was as popular as ever this year. Eric Wilson, a returning athlete, was at the hole to make the putt first for each team and he sank a 30-foot putt!
We’re proud to host this event each year and to make an impact on the lives of the athletes. If you’ve never attended a Special Olympics event, we encourage you to check one out and join us next year for this great event.
