TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

The Tybee Island Police Department came together Friday to help one of their own by hosting a golf tournament. 

The tournament held at the Bacon Park Golf Course is a fundraiser to benefit Sgt. Bruce Saunders. Sgt. Saunders has recently been diagnosed with kidney disease and this golf tournament is being held to raise funds to help with his medical bills which will soon pile up. 

"It's a brotherhood," said LT. Joseph Toole, Tybee Island Police Department. "If you don't know a police officer, you still have a common bond regardless of who he is. When you see one who's in need, you want to reach out and you want to help."

Tournament officials said they had 12 teams participate in Friday's fundraiser.
