CUMMING, Ga. — Dr. Jim Morrow is known to many people in the greater Forsyth County area. He’s the founder and CEO of Morrow Family Medicine. But healing sick patients is not the only thing this doctor is doing for the community. He and his wife Peggy host an annual BYOT golf benefit.

“BYOT means bring your own technology which is an initiative in the Forsyth County schools that they started many years ago to get kids more informed and more responsible using internet and devices. We found out years ago there are a lot of children in the county that don't have those things. So we started raising money to try to provide them the technology they need so they can succeed in school,” Morrow said. “What we do is we provide the money we raise to the county schools and they have a contract with a company that provides hot spots for people's homes, so up to 10 people can get online at the same time using that hotspot. Without that, they do not have internet in their home. If they have that and need devices, they will provide a Chromebook or something like that so they can get online.”

He says they thought they’d only raise a couple thousand dollars, but the golf tournament drew more people than they expected.

“In that first year we raised almost $28,000,” Morrow said. “Since then, in six years, we've raised and given to the county schools just over $300,000.”

The annual golf tournament is not the only way the Morrows are making a difference.

“We do two fundraisers every year,” Morrow said. “We have the golf tournament in the spring like this and in the fall, in October, we have a 5K and fun run that we will do. Last year we had almost a thousand runners.”

Even though the golf benefit is just a couple days away, Morrow says it’s not too late to get involved.

“The golf tournament is Monday, May 6th at Polo Golf and Country Club here in Forsyth County,” Morrow said. “You can just show up on Monday at Polo and play. You don't have to register. If you want to, just come. Bring your buddies and come on. We're going to have a great time. We're going to have a breakfast bar, Bloody Mary bar, cigar bar, and we're going to have a golf cannon on one hole. Rocky Shipes the trick shot artist is going to be doing that at the driving range, and he will be hitting drives for people on a par 4 for a chance to win Masters tickets. We will have a great barbecue buffet afterwards, a lot of prizes, raffles and so forth.”

The entrance fee is $150/person. Registration starts Monday morning at 7:30, and the shotgun start is scheduled for 9 o’clock rain or shine.

“My wife Peggy is always in charge of weather, and so far, every year we’ve had magnificent weather,” Morrow said.
