This weekend, Bella Bugg ‘23 will hit the links in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, The Snedeker Foundation, and the American Junior Golf Association’s ACE Grant program. Joining 23 junior golfers from around the state, Bugg will play in the AJGA’s third annual Tennessee Cup, a two-day Ryder Cup-style event.
“I have not played in this event before, but the chance to represent Tennessee and raise money for some of my favorite nonprofit organizations made it a tournament that I knew I had to put myself in to represent them well,” said Bella. “So far, as a team, we’ve raised nearly $50,000.” You can learn more about the cup and Bella’s fundraising efforts here.
