Meals-on-Wheels still has morning and afternoon tee times available for the 22nd annual Golf Benefit.

The event will be held Thursday, Sept. 17, at Hidden Creek Golf Course in Burleson.  “Early bird” registration at $100 per golfer will be available until Friday, Aug. 28. After Friday, the price will increase by $25.     

“We encourage you to be sure you get your registration in soon,” said Meals-on-Wheels director of development, Amy Jackson. Registration can be done online at or by contacting the Meals-on-Wheels offices.

There will be shotgun starts at 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., with the tournament following a four-player scramble format. Each player’s entry fee includes green fee, half-cart, a T-shirt, cold drinks and food throughout the day – and chances at $5,000 in prizes.

A special mulligan and prize package is available at a discount of $20 prior to the event.  This will include two mulligans and five chances to win sporting event tickets, airfare for two and other great prizes. Raffle ticket sales will also begin to the public on Sept. 1.  These tickets can be bought online at or by contacting the Meals-on-Wheels offices.

The Golf Benefit is Meals-on-Wheels’ signature event, and the community looks forward to it every year, golf chairman Ike Vera said.

“Each year we strive to make the benefit bigger and better and this year will not be any different. We have great giveaways, food, and cash prizes, but, most importantly, when you participate, Meals-on-Wheels benefits,” he said.

The benefit’s proceeds, raised from golfers and sponsorships, will help Meals-on-Wheels provide more than 220,000 meals for elderly and disabled residents throughout Johnson and Ellis counties.
