Tuesday, even the rain could not stop golf for a good cause. The Savannah Professional Firefighters Association hosted their annual Charity Golf Tournament to benefit the Savannah Fallen Firefighters Fund. Some 140 players participated in the event at the Bacon Park Golf Course. This helps raise funds for the families of firefighters who died in the line of duty or due to other problems. “Much of what we generate today will go to the family of Captain Matt Kelly,” said Johnny Hinton, president of the Savannah Professional Firefighters Association. “He died of occupational cancer last year, so this will help send his family to Colorado and have his name revealed on the wall.”
