Chatata Valley Golf Club will play host to the Skyler-Mobile Golf Tournament Sept. 7. The tournament will tee off at 2 p.m.

Ten-year-old Skyler Bates was born with cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. He is being raised by his grandparents. The proceeds from the tournament will go to help the grandparents purchase a much-needed wheelchair accessible van for the fast-growing young man. The van will be used to transport Skyler to school, church, family functions and other activities.

Skyler tragically lost his two younger brothers two years ago to their mother’s involvement with methamphetamines. Now, Skyler wants to be able to reach the public and tell his story of how the deadly drug destroys — and hopefully save the life of someone dealing with or affected by meth.

Skyler is a remarkable young man with a big message who loves the Lord and is always smiling. Despite the loss he has faced in his 10 years, he is a big inspiration to many. Learn more about Skyler on Facebook at Skyler’s Anti-Meth Fight.

The cost for the tournament is $75 per person. The cost includes cart, greens fee, lunch, complimentary drink cart, one mulligan, one red tee and driving range. The format is 4-person, scramble select shot. The driving range will be open at 12:15 p.m., with lunch at 12:30.

Registration forms may be picked up at Chatata Valley Golf Course.
