Charity golf tournament still looking for players

The annual Remington Walls charity golf tournament to benefit the American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders will take place May 1 at Lexington Oaks Golf Club in Wesley Chapel. The event is named after a 10-year-old boy who has the disease, which is characterized by severe food allergies. His parents created the event six years ago after their son was diagnosed with the incurable disease. So far, it has raised more than $75,000 for APFED.

"We've sold out every year and there is usually a waiting list," Remington's mother Stephanie Walls said. "We grew up here and we've made it into a family event. People have been overwhelmingly generous, but this year has been slow to see registrations."

The deadline to register is April 15 at an individual price of $75 per person or $280 per team. The price includes greens fees, cart fees, range balls and a buffet. Checks should be made payable to APFED and registrations can be mailed to 3359 Lake Padgett Drive, Land O'Lakes, FL 34639. The tournament will begin at 1 p.m.

For information, contact Mike Walls at (813) 996-9931. For information on sponsorships or donations, call Stephanie Walls at (813) 997-2151.
