Lincoln's Hillcrest Country Club is holding a golf tournament Thursday to help with the cleanup effort at Norris School near Firth.

The school was severely damaged by May tornadoes.

Hillcrest Country Club officials say a goal of 144 golfers signing up has already been reached and exceeded. Club officials say the response has been so overwhelming they are considering adding a second day just to accommodate all the people who want to participate.

Norris Superintendent Roy Baker says everyone at Norris has been overwhelmed by all the support received since tornadoes devastated the school a month ago.

To date, he says upwards of $15,000 in donations have been received.

While the golf tournament has a waiting list, there is an awards banquet being held Thursday evening. Tickets are $50.
