Coaches show support at American Cancer Society golf outing

MANAKIN-SABOT, VA (WWBT) -

The Central Virginia Chapter of the American Cancer Society held its 23rd annual golf tournament on Monday afternoon at Hermitage Country Club in an effort to raise money and awareness to fight cancer.

37 teams made it out to the course for this event, which raised approximately $175,000. 

Area coaches played a big part in the success, as Richmond head men's basketball coach Chris Mooney and James Madison head hoops coach Matt Brady both appeared to show their support in the fight against this potentially deadly disease.

Golfers were also given the opportunity to bid on several items, such as a trip to Scotland and autographed apparel, during an awards reception following the round.
