WHATCOM CO., WASH. (July 2017) — The Opportunity Council will host the annual “Golf FORE! Good” fundraising tournament Aug. 3 to support children who are disadvantaged or disabled.
Last year the tournament raised over $19,000 for children in the Opportunity Council’s early learning education programs, and plans to raise even more this year.
“This year’s ‘Golf FORE! Good’ event promises to be another fun day on the golf course supporting local children who need our help,” said Summer Starr, Opportunity Council event coordinator.
The tournament will have a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Friday, Aug. 3. The contests at the event include: putting, longest drive, closest to the pin and hole-in-one. The cost is $125 per golfer or $500 for a team of four. Registration also covers green fees, golf carts, access to the driving range and participation in the tournament.
After the tournament, the awards banquet will be held where the winners will be announced and prizes will be awarded. In addition, all participants have an opportunity to win one of over 50 raffle prizes from local businesses, restaurants and stores.
Presenting sponsors for Golf FORE! Good include Peoples Bank and Superfeet. A limited number of additional tournament sponsorships are still available.
