“We’re honored that Little General has continued its tradition of philanthropic involvement and community support with its generous contribution for our first annual golf tournament,” began Jason Parsons, President of Remember The Miners. “Little General has been an integral part of our fundraising process in the past, including sponsoring our first class of the Scholars Program in 2011.”

Prior to the event’s beginning, awardees of the Spring 2012 Pritchard Mining Class will be announced, and Remember The Miners will conduct tribute programming honoring the coal miners, their families, and the community. A cocktail reception will be held following the tournament, in addition to a seated dinner.
