On Thursday, Aug. 22, the inaugural Fore IV Invitational will take place at the Cape Fear National Golf Club in Leland. All proceeds will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which researches cures for CF and helps families purchase treatment supplies.

C.T. Shaw, the event coordinator, named the tournament after his 2-year-old son, IV, who suffers from CF. A complimentary breakfast will be provided before the tournament begins at 9 a.m. The event will conclude with a pig pickin’, also complimentary, and a silent auction. Auction items include an autographed copy of Arnold Palmer’s memoir, “A Golfer’s Life,” a Harbour Town flag autographed by Pete Dye and a 1986 Masters scorecard donated by Jack Nicklaus.

Additionally, every golfer in the Fore IV Invitational will be eligible to win a prize.

“Every participant will be entered to win a three-day, four-night trip to Hilton Head Island,” Shaw said. The package will include two rounds of golf for four people.

Participants will have a chance to challenge Rick Lewallen, a professional golfer from South Carolina.
