ATHENS, W.Va. The 24th Annual Homer K. Ball Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament will be held Friday, June 14, 2013 at Pipestem Resort State Park. Proceeds from the tournament are used to fund scholarships for Concord University students.
 
Through the years, the event has raised more than $200,000 and funded approximately 800 scholarships for Concord students.
 
Ball, a Lerona, W.Va. native, graduated from Concord in 1948. He served as sheriff of Mercer County, West Virginia state senator and director of the physical plant at Concord.
 
Ball was also an avid golfer. In 1991, the annual golf tournament benefiting Concord was named in his honor. After his passing in 2008, the tournament was renamed the Homer K. Ball Memorial Golf Tournament.
 
Tee time for the captain's choice tournament is 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start on Pipestem's 18-hole course. A luncheon will follow in the picnic shelter below the golf course parking lot. The cost is $125 per person, which includes lunch, green fees, cart and tournament souvenirs.
 
Drawings include a chance to win golf packages, equipment and other prizes. There will be a special prize for the first hole-in-one. Awards will go to the first and second place winners of the men's and women's teams. Longest drive and closest-to-the-pin awards will also be given.
 
Registration deadline is Monday, June 10, 2013. Checks for registration fees may be made payable to Concord University Foundation, Inc. and mailed to P.O. Box 1405, Athens, WV 24712. For additional information call 304-384-6311.
