The Doug Black Charity Golf Tournament, now in its 19th year celebrates the life of Doug Black. Doug’s too-short life continues to have an impact, in spite of his death from an aggressive form of cancer at age 26. Those of us who knew Dougie are grateful for our fond memories and the time we spent with him. For those who never knew Doug, the Fore Dougie is an event that celebrates the life of a unique individual of unparalleled integrity, who brought joy and kindness to everyone he met. It is a chance to learn about Doug and why he was loved by so many, and to join his friends and family by helping others in his name. To keep Doug’s memory and spirit alive, the Doug Black Foundation was established in 1998. Thus far over $151,000 has been donated in Doug’s name to scholarships for scholar-athletes and several charitable organizations. Each of our contributions keeps Doug’s spirit alive by helping him touch others in need.
