At least on this day, the nine irons golfers swing may pack a little extra punch behind them than usual

That's because individuals will be "Driving For A Cause" as part of the eighth Annual St. John Neumann Regional School "Fore the Students" Golf Tournament.

This year's event will be held In Memory of Michael E. Kulp, a seventh-grade SJNRS student who died in November.

Funds raised benefit students at St. John Neumann, and the Michael E. Kulp Scholarship Fund.

There will be a 4-Man Scramble. Registration is at 7:30 a.m., with a Shotgun Start at 9 a.m.
