About Golf Classic
In 1991, community leaders and medical professionals recognized that both children and their families are in crisis when their child is ill. As a result, the Friends of Children was created. The organization’s primary focus is to enhance pediatric care, help less fortunate children gain access to medicine they need, and to serve as an advocate for sick children and their families.
Legendary golfing instructor, L.B. Floyd, and his wife, Yvonne, joined the cause in 1993 and created the L.B. Floyd Friends of Children Golf Classic. In the years since, the tournament has raised more than $1.4 million, which has helped fund a variety of pediatric programs and needs.
They include purchasing orthopedic surgical instruments, state-of-the-art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit beds, renovations to the Pediatric Emergency Department, and support for pediatric services at the Cape Fear Valley Diabetes and Endocrine Center. Most recently, Friends of Children was able to assist in the renovation of the newest Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in the state of North Carolina, right here at Cape Fear Valley Health.
The tournament’s name changed to the Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation’s Friends of Children Classic in Memory of L.B. Floyd with the namesake’s passing, but the commitment to help hospitalized children and their families remains the same.
On Thursday, September 27, 2018, the legacy continues with the 23rd Annual Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation’s Friends of Children Golf Classic in Memory of L.B. Floyd. The tournament will be at Highland Country Club in Fayetteville, N.C., and the public is invited.
