The Neponset Valley Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual golf tournament in the memory of a deceased Canton resident and in honor of one of his Canton schools.
The tournament, held at the Easton Country Club in South Easton on Monday, Aug. 12, will honor the life of Matty Christian, who was born in 1983 without hands or feet.
Christian graduated from Canton High School and went on to Bryant College and received an MBA from Curry College, but the school that will benefit will be the Massachusetts Hospital School in Canton, where Christian attended preschool.
Christian passed away in 2009, at the age of 25, but inspired others with his speeches and his talent in swimming and basketball.
The donation to the school will be made in his name. For more information on the tournament, contact Cristoff Shay at 781-769-1126 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
