GRANITEVILLE, SC (WFXG) -

Rain or shine, dozens of golfers came to help an organization that's helping families like their own. On Monday, Support 1 hosted its 2nd annual golf tournament at the Midland Valley County Club in Graniteville.

Support 1 is an organization established to help families and friends cope after losing a loved one in the line of duty. Chris Chavous, founder of Support 1, said he was overwhelmed by the support the emergency response community has given him and his organization.

"It feels good to know that I've got the backing of not just the police, fire and EMS in the community, but some of the business entities as well," Chavous said.

This is Support 1's primary fundraiser of the year. Last year, the even raised $8,600. This year, Chavous said more teams and businesses are participating, and expects to pass last year's funds.
