The 2nd annual “Chipping in for Johnny” golf tournament has been scheduled for Monday, October 14 in central Kentucky to raise funds for Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital and defray the rehabilitation expenses of Johnny Morris, the 24-year-old son of longtime horse industry executive Joe Morris. The younger Morris suffered paralysis in a freak accident at his apartment in July 2012.
Last year's golf tournament raised nearly $100,000 to assist with Morris' rehabilitation, much of which occurred at nearby Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital, a nationally-acclaimed facility located in Lexington. This year's event will benefit the John Morris Foundation and Cardinal Hill.
“We are so pleased to be involved in the “Chipping in for Johnny” Golf Tournament. The Morris family are wonderful advocates for people with physical rehabilitation needs and their support will go a long way in helping others,” said Gary Payne, President/CEO of Cardinal Hill Hospital.
The “Chipping in for Johnny” tournament will be held at Canewood Golf Course in Georgetown, Ky., and is tentatively scheduled to begin at noon. The cost is $100 per golfer or $350 per foursome.
