The "Go Gracie Go" annual golf tournament was held Friday at The Pines Country Club in Morgantown.

The tournament helps support Gracie Meek, who suffered a spinal cord stroke that left her paralyzed from the neck down when she was 7 years old.

Gracie's family has hosted the event for seven years.

Golfers paid a cover to participate and were able to buy raffle tickets. A silent auction was also held at the event.

The money raised makes it possible for the family to buy tools to help Gracie's situation.

"If we had not had the support that we've had from the area and everyone involved, Grace would not be where she is today. There's just no doubt about it. And we appreciate that," said JoAnn Brown, Gracie's grandmother.

Brown said this is the last year the family will hold the event.
