Things are changing, but not too drastically and that applies to some local charity events. 

The Marlee Sutton Foundation Golf Tournament is still expected to take place, though it will now happen at a later date. 

The tournament will now take place on Saturday, August 23. 

This will be the second annual tournament hosted by the Foundation. 

The Marlee Sutton Foundation was founded after the unexpected and heartbreaking loss of Lawrence County resident and Hatton student Marlee Sutton in 2018. 

The Foundation is dedicated to advocating mental health and supporting suicide prevention. 

Proceeds from the tournament will go towards the causes mentioned above. 

The tournament will take place on August 23 at 8:30 a.m. and will be hosted by Deer Run Golf Course in Moulton. 

Registration will be from 6-8:30 a.m. on tournament day and the format will be a four man scramble. 

The entry fee per team is $400 and that will cover entry into the tournament, free food and a sleeve of Callaway golf balls. There will also be door prizes given away and a 50/50 raffle. 

The top four teams in the tournament will receive cash prizes. In addition, $50 will be awarded to closest to the pin on par 3s and second shot closest to the pin on par 5s. 

Four random golfers will also be chosen to have a shot at $10,000 if they can shoot a hole in one. 

Finally there will be a team putting contest, where the winning team will receive $200.
