Owners of Papa D's named Red Cross Community Impact Heroes

Posted: Updated:
WSLS 10 and the American Red Cross team up again this year for our celebration of heroes.

First up, we want to introduce you to Kory and Trena Wolford, owners of Papa D's on Williamson Road, who have been named Community Impact Heroes.

They started a charity pool tournament back in 2006 for Toys for Tots.

The couple threw the first tournament together in just two weeks with about 40 participants.

Fast forward to last year and nearly 150 people took part.

“We wanted to give back to others, to kids who didn't have it as well off as we did or as our kids do,” Trena explained.

“This award is amazing, but it's not the reason we do this.  The reason we do this is to try to help our community out in any way possible,” Kory said.

The Wolfords have helped raise $78,000 for local children over the years.
