COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – WTVM's Jason Dennis was out hitting the links for a good cause Monday!

Jason had the opportunity to play in the 22nd annual Synovus Celebrity Classic Golf tournament, and his team ended the day in first place out of 20-plus teams that played Monday afternoon.

The real winners are local cancer patients and their families. This event has raised $ 3.5 million over the last two decades, all to impact and expand patient care at the John B. Amos cancer Center, the region's leading integrated cancer center.

"Helps bring quality and best cancer care— stay here with loved ones," said Allie Lassiter, Columbus Regional Health Foundation

This event on the golf course was the end of a four-day tennis and golf tournament with all the money raised going to the John B. Amos Cancer Center in Columbus.
