Jeffrey Chavis Golf Tournament

Golf | Burn Foundation of America

In 2001, Jeffrey Vaden Chavis was battling a structure fire in Lexington, SC when the ceiling collapsed, trapping him, and he was airlifted to the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta. His family rushed to his side, where, through the Burn Foundation, they were able to remain for the 3 weeks that he heroically battled his injuries until he could fight no more.  To honor his memory and ensure that other families could remain with their loved ones through burn trauma, The Jeffrey Vaden Chavis Golf Tournament is held at Ponderosa Country Club in Batesburg-Leesville each fall.  To play or sponsor this year’s tournament, held on October 11th, please contact Julie Ferguson at 706-831-6469.
