Lin Bell Golf For Kids to Benefit The First Tee of Maine
Lin Bell was well known in the community for his ability to pull people together for a common cause. Over the course of his life, he helped many charitable organizations with his leadership, integrity, and perseverance. Lin also loved the game of golf and the life lessons the game teaches its players. To continue this legacy of giving, and love of the game, we invite you to participate in the Lin Bell Golf for Kids. This annual tournament will celebrate the spirit of caring and sportsmanship. All proceeds from this yearly event will benefit The First Tee of Maine, and continue the great work teaching children the game of golf and the core values associated with both the game and life.
