The Jason Foundation, Inc. (JFI), a nationally recognized leader in youth suicide awareness and prevention, headquartered in Hendersonville, announced that its 23rd Annual Phillip Fulmer and Charlie Daniels Golf Classic raised over $260,000 for the organization. The event, held on August 17, is JFI’s largest and only annual fundraiser and was held in memory of Charlie Daniels, who passed away last year. This year’s tournament was held at the Hermitage Golf Course in Old Hickory where over 280 golfers participated. Coach Phillip Fulmer was present on this day with other recognizable patrons by his side to support the cause. Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for youth ages 10 – 24, claiming more than 125 young lives each week in our nation. The Jason Foundation’s mission is to equip students, parents, teachers, and the community with the tools and resources to help identify and assist youth at-risk for suicide.
