Meals-on-Wheels and its title sponsor, Community Bank, are set for the nonprofit organization’s 24th annual golf benefit, slated for Thursday, Sept. 15, at Hidden Creek Golf Course in Burleson.
Registration for the benefit is open and morning and afternoon tee times are still available. Early bird registration, with discounted pricing, ends Aug. 26. As in years passed, golfers can sign up for morning and afternoon flights.
“We encourage you to register soon to make certain of your place,” said Meals-on-Wheels executive director, Vinsen Faris. Registration can be done online at www.servingthechildrenofyesterday.org or by contacting the Meals-on-Wheels offices.
There will be morning and afternoon shotgun starts at 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., respectively, with the tournament following a four-player scramble format.
Each player’s entry fee includes green fee, ½ cart, a T-shirt, cold drinks and food throughout the day, plus chances at $5,000 in prizes. This year’s golfer package also includes two mulligans and two chances to win prizes such as sporting event tickets, airfare for two and many more.
The community looks forward to the golf benefit every year, said Ike Vera, golf chairman.
“Each year we strive to make the benefit special and this year will not be any different, as we are pleased to be returning to Hidden Creek,” Vera said. “We have a great day planned again this year with great giveaways, cash prizes, food and cold beverages, but, most importantly, all proceeds will benefit Meals-on-Wheels.”
The golf benefit’s proceeds, raised from golfers and sponsorships, will help Meals-on-Wheels provide more than 250,000 meals for the elderly and disabled residents throughout Johnson and Ellis counties.
