Bob Bell Automotive, in partnership with There Goes My Hero, an organization dedicated to saving lives, providing hope and helping those affected by blood cancer, raised nearly $62,000 during its second annual Bob Bell Automotive Charity Golf Tournament Sept. 9.

More than 100 golfers took to the course at Chartwell Golf & Country Club in Severna Park for 18 holes of golf as the main event of the fundraiser, which also included a bone marrow drive, a dinner featuring a video presentation and special guest speakers from both organizations.

Now in its second year, the annual event originated in honor of the late Bob Bell, founder of Bob Bell Automotive, who passed away in 2011 after battling leukemia. All proceeds from the event will go toward providing meals, transportation and other services to patients undergoing treatment, as well as towards future bone marrow registry drives.
