Llama Rama is postpones one week until October 10.

Due to extreme weather conditions, we feel it will be safer for everyone if we postpone our Llama Rama Golf Tournament until Saturday, October 10th.  All the other details of the tournament remain the same. Registration begins at 8 AM. Team captains are asked to check in their teams by 8:15.

We apologize for the delay. We hope all our players, sponsors, friends and volunteers will be able to come out on Oct 10.  If you have any questions or concerns, please call SAFE at 828-885-7233.  We hope for better, safer, drier weather on Saturday, October 10.

Thank you all for your help, support & patience.

Even if you can't play, consider showing your support for SAFE and local victims of sexual and domestic violence by becoming a sponsor. You may download a sponsor form here. We always have room for more sponsors! Come out and join us for llamas and lunch!

Thank you to everyone who helps make this event such a special one each year! We are so grateful to all our sponsors, players, volunteers, donors and friends.
