On Friday, July 19, 2012, 52 players participated in the 9th Annual Russ Turney Memorial State's Attorney's Charity Open at the Glade Valley Golf Club, in Walkersville, Maryland.
The event was named in memory of Mr. turney, a long time State's Attorney's Office Investigator and past chairman of the event. Each year a different local charity is selected by State's Attorney J. Charles Smith, III. This year's charity was Hospice of Frederick County.
Over 50 businesses, groups and individuals sponsored holes, door prizes, and raffle prizes for the event. By doing so, a donation of $5,000.00 was made to Hospice of Frederick County.
State's Attorney Smith said, "Hospice is certainly an organization that any of us may need at any time. We are thrilled to be able to donate to such a quality organization."
