Members of the Triangle media will once again compete in a Ryder Cup style golf tournament to benefit Communities In Schools of Wake and Durham counties. The third annual Triangle Media Ryder Cup sponsored by Indoor Greens Mini Golf and Café will be held on May 31st at Knight’s Play Golf Course in Apex, N.C. The after party is open to the public and will be held at Indoor Greens in Cary, N.C.
Members of traditional media (newspapers, tv, radio) will compete against members of Internet media (bloggers, podcasters) in the one-day golf tournament. The goal of the event is to raise money for the Durham and Wake county chapters of Communities in Schools (CIS), an organization who aims “to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.”
‘We are proud to be the title sponsor of an event that will help keep our children in schools,” says Angela Luff, owner of Indoor Greens. “It’s flattering to be part of such of a positive community initiative created by members of the Triangle sports media,” she added.
“We’re excited to do this again and help Communities in Schools,” said Team Internet captain Ben Swain, co-host of The Walk-Ons podcast. “Triangle sports media members are passionate about education and we want to do our part” he added.
Communities In Schools has been helping students achieve in school, graduate and go on to bright futures. Their mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. For over 20 years, CIS Wake and Durham have served their communities as part of 37 local affiliates across the state of North Carolina and part of a national network of 181 local affiliates serving more than 1.3 million students in 25 states.
