Community rallies together for boy suffering from cystic fibrosis

Posted: Updated:

BRUNSWICK COUNTY NC (WECT) - Hundreds came out to the Magnolia Greens Golf Course Saturday afternoon for a little boy battling cystic fibrosis.

Teeing it up for IV, a charity golf tournament was formed to raise money for "IV," a 20-month-old boy suffering from the disease.

Among those in attendance were former Carolina Panthers player Nick Goings, and professional surfer Tony Silvagni.

Vendors lined the walkways outside of the Magnolia Greens clubhouse selling everything from ice cream to hair bows with a percentage of all sales and booth fees being donated to IV's family as well.

The inaugural event was organized by "Cape Fear Family Day," a local not-for-profit organization that creates fundraisers for special needs or causes in our community. Their next event will be Cornhole for Cancer at the Wilmington Convention center on April 20.
