Come golf fore the United Way

Published 12:00 am Thursday, April 17, 2008

No one can predict what the weather will be on Friday, but we can promise you that the golf will be hot!

Come join us for the 15th annual United Way Golf Scramble at beautiful Beau Pré County Club. Let’s have some fun while raising money to fund our community agencies. The Natchez Isle of Capri is pleased to be able to be a major sponsor and many other local businesses are supporting us with door prizes, donations and the sponsorship of teams. We invite others to join. An individual hole sponsorship is only $150

Come on out for a fun afternoon. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Following the scramble, an awards reception will feature hors d’oeuvres, beverages and prizes. The entry fee is $125 per person and includes green fees, cart, range balls, lunch and reception. Three stroke mulligans may be purchased for $20.

Great prizes including golf merchandise will be awarded to winning teams and for closest to the hole, longest drive, and the much sought after hole in one. Lots of fun door prizes give everyone an extra chance to take something home. Players may sign up individually and will be assigned to a team or you can create your own four-person team.

In addition to players, we need tournament sponsors. Platinum sponsorship is $800 and includes reception sponsorship, a four-person team, and hole sponsorship. The Gold $500 level includes reception sponsorship, a two-man entry, and hole sponsorship. Silver for $250 includes one entry and hole sponsorship. Anyone can sponsor a hole for $150. Entry forms are available from the local United Way office at the old A&B Motor building or by calling 601-442-1081. Don’t delay if you want to play.

The United Way Board of the Greater Miss-Lou and all the agencies they support encourage golfers on both sides of the river to come out, play golf and help our community.
