Ping pong at Forsyth eatery benefits Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta

SOUTH FORSYTH — It is not the famous biannual ping pong tournament its owner holds for charity, but it is ping pong at the popular south Forsyth eatery nonetheless.

A double-elimination fundraiser tournament is set for noon to 5 p.m. Saturday at Norman’s Landing.

Bill Norman, owner of the restaurant, said the setup is essentially the same as events he has in March and October. What’s different, this time, is the fact he’s simply opening his doors and tables to players. Another person is raising the money.

Norman said it’s the fourth year this tournament will be held in Forsyth to benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, but the first time it will be at his restaurant.

Each player can participate for $25. There will be two or three tables available for games.

Throughout the day, raffle and door prizes will be awarded.

The tournament leads up to Norman’s efforts next month to raise money for autism awareness and a fishing tournament to benefit the Fuller Center for Housing.
