The annual Birdies for Brittney Golf Tournament takes place to honor the memory of Brittney Gorman Parrish.
Parish passed away four years ago at the young age of 28 due to an unexpected cancer, leaving her family, husband and 9-month-old daughter.
All proceeds from the event go to her foundation and their non profit partner this year, the Barren River Area Child Advocacy Center. The foundation gives scholarships to high school students who are planning on attending Western Kentucky University. The tournament was sold out with 220 players. Doug Gorman, Brittney’s father, says they raised over $100,000 this year.
