The Winston-Salem Stealers Golf Tournament has been around for more than a decade.  The tournament, which started out helping the Stealers AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) program, has grown to support other organizations in need. The Stealers will hold their annual tournament this Saturday, Aug. 19, at the Winston Lake Golf Course.

This year the proceeds from the tournament will go toward not only helping out the Stealers but also the Triad Tackers, a wheelchair basketball program; Twin City Jazz program; and Beautiful Countenance Inc. which is a nonprofit that helps individuals dealing with domestic violence.

“All of the proceeds we raise for the Stealers program go toward uniform costs, a scholarship program for kids that can’t afford to play, and we are trying to develop a youth program for our wheelchair basketball organization,” said Brian Robinson, founder and president of the Stealers AAU program. 

Brian Robinson says he was interested in being involved with the golf tournament as a way to connect with the community.  He says throughout the years they have had many individuals from different companies around the Triad participate, which gives them the opportunity to learn about the Stealers program.

“It has been a lot of fun throughout the years, and I see that the golfers have a lot of fun during the pre- and post-tournament dinners we have,” he continued.  “It is a way to do something non-basketball related to help us out with our expenses.”

Alvin Robinson does most of the recruiting of getting the golfers into the tournament.  Over the years they have had many big named individuals from the city of Winston-Salem participate in the tournament.  Two years ago, NBA All-Star Chris Paul came out to play in the tournament while also donating items to be auctioned off for more proceeds.

For Alvin Robinson, he wanted to be a part of the tournament because he wanted to give something back to the community.  His father introduced him to the game of golf and he wanted to pay homage to him by being a part of the tournament.

Brian Robinson says he really appreciates the participation of Alvin Robinson for his tireless work in raising money for the tournament. 

Daniel Motsinger, owner/CEO of Cahill & Swain, has been a long time contributor to the tournament throughout the years.  He says he enjoys giving back to the community because that’s how he was taught as a child.
