Golfing for a cause

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Golfers lined up Thursday night in Columbus for the annual Twilight Golf Event to benefit the area's visually impaired.

It's sponsored every year by Country's Barbecue and the Columbus Sports Council.

The golf championship features both sighted and visually impaired golfers playing together to raise awareness and money.

Tonight's "eye opening" event is the first of several that will culminate this weekend with the 5K midnight run all to benefit the area's blind and visually impaired.
