Eagles Wings

Eagles’ Wings of Tuscaloosa was forced to to cancel their 15th annual Dinner and Silent Auction event because of the coronavirus, but that didn’t stop them from enjoying the weather and playing the annual golf tournament.

In a normal year, Eagles’ Wings would hold its annual golf tournament at Indian Hills Country Club in April, which would be followed by a dinner and silent auction the following Friday.

But 2020 is anything but normal, so the dinner and auction was canceled, leaving Eagles’ Wings without their largest fundraiser of the year.

Jerry Pike, president and CEO of Eagle’s Wings, was determined to at least hold the golf tournament to raise as much as they could.

“We wanted to try to get the golf tournament in to help us a little bit and so we’ve been able to do that so we’re very pleased to at least be able to do that part,” Pike said.

Pike said they are planning on having both the dinner-auction and the golf tournament next May.
