Funds raised will assist the Food Bank in its goal to raise $20,000 for a matching challenge grant with a looming deadline of Nov. 11.

“The Rotary Club wanted a way to give back to the community, especially the Food Bank, in a fun way,” said Rotary member and event organizer Joy Felty.

Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. and a shotgun start will take place at 10 a.m. Lunch will be provided at noon.  The tournament will host four-player teams with an entrance fee of $200 per team. Hole sponsorships are available for $50 or $100. Families, friends and businesses are encouraged to register teams for a friendly competition.
