AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) — Golfers teed up on Monday for the 22nd annual Paul Anderson Golf Classic at The River Club in North Augusta. The Paul Anderson Youth Home
helps teens with addictions get back on their feet.

“It’s tough but it’s definitely worth it,” said Graham Cashin, who is currently in the program,”They’ve taught me so much stuff about how to grow and how to be a man
, and before I came here I was a boy, but now I am a man.”
Jessie Wells graduated
from the program and said the golf classic is a good opportunity to give back to the program that has given him so much.
that I can be here and help them because they have helped me so much,” said Wells.”Now that I have graduated I can come back and serve them like they served me.”
