Several golfers hit the links to day to raise money for the Noah Project. It is the largest fundraiser that the local non-profit has each year. Executive Director of the Noah Project, Leigh Ann Fry, says that she was thrilled by this year's turnout.

"This year we had so many people interested we actually had two tee times. We had a group off at 8 am and another teeing off at 1:30pm."

One former Dallas Cowboy traveled to Diamondback Golf Club to show his support. Long time safety, Bill Bates, explained that he is glad to support the Noah Project. "It is great to be able to support the Noah Project...for me to be able to come out and be part of this is awesome" explains Bates.

While the golf served as a fun way to relax and have fun, the funds raised will make a serious impact on the organization that strives to advocate for victims and end family violence.

"Its things that keep us going like food, clothing, electricity, transportation for clients and medical needs of clients, so these are really treasured funds" explains Fry.
