The 16th Annual Miller Harris Memorial Golf Tournament will be played Monday, Sept. 14 at Temple Hills Country Club in Nashville.
The tournament benefits the Miller Harris Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports the Miller Harris Asthma Camp For Kids, in partnership with the Monroe Carrell, Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and the Joe C. Davis YMCA Outdoor Center. The Miller Harris Asthma Camp hosts kids age 6-13 with asthma, whose health makes regular summer camp too difficult.
The tournament’s format is a four-person, best ball scramble and is open to the public. The cost per player is $200. Team sponsorships are available for $1,000, $2,500 and $5,000. Shotgun start is at 10 a.m. Food and beverages are served throughout the day and the evening finishes with a cocktail dinner and awards party. All golfers will receive a gift bag with a memento of the tournament. Players will be eligible for huge prizes including an automobile from Beaman Toyota and $10,000 in cash.

The Miller Harris Foundation was founded in 2002 by family and friends of Harris following his death from a sudden asthma attack. Harris is the son of Nashville publishing veteran Judy Harris.
