NASCAR Drivers Raise Money for Cystic Fibrosis at Slim Jim Keller Golf Tourney

21 August 1997


GREENVILLE, SC - The third annual Jason Keller Cystic Fibrosis Charity Golf 
Tournament presented by Slim Jim and held August 19 at The Cliffs Valley 
Course, Travelers Rest, SC raised over $18,000 to help find a cure for cystic 
fibrosis. That makes over $48,000 that Keller has generated with his golf 
tournaments, to fight the fatal genetic disease.

"I can't thank everyone enough for their support of such a worthy cause. To 
have two of the champions of NASCAR's premier divisions, Randy LaJoie and Ron 
Hornaday, Jr. and golf professionals Jay Haas and Chris Patton participate 
was special for all who attended," said Keller.

"I received a lot of positive comments about how much fun everyone had at 
this year's tournament and we are already thinking about how to make next 
year's even better."

NASCAR drivers who participated in the tournament were Larry Pearson, Randy 
LaJoie, Ron Hornaday, Jr., Elliott Sadler, Elton Sawyer, Kevin Lepage, Ronnie 
Silver, David Bonnett, Shawn Hendricks, Mike Dillon, Randy Porter, Shane 
Hall, Mardy Lindley, and Stevie Reeves.
