KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Like a few of its organizers, the FAT Boys Against Hunger golf tournament has gotten bigger over the years.
"We started this event fourteen years ago and it has become a huge success for us," said Irving Rosenbloom, president of the University Area Sertoma Club.
This year's tournament returns to Egwani Farms on May 15. It will pair four players with a UT Letterman for an 18-hole scramble and various prizes for longest drive, closest to the pin and hole-in-one.
The inspiration for the name FAT Boys Against Hunger came from Sertoma Club members Glenn Streno and Mike Burnette who found themselves brainstorming for a way to make the event, which started as a hole-in-one contest, even bigger.
"FAT doesn't just describe some of the club members," said Rosenbloom. "It also stands for Feed America Today."
The FAT Boys tournament is the major fundraising effort for the University Area Sertoma Club and benefits the Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee.
