Hey duffers, are you looking for golfing fun and festivity at a great venue?

Then grab your clubs and come join us for the 20th annual United Way golf scramble on Thursday, June 6, at the beautiful Beau Pré Country Club. It’s a great way to have some fun while helping the United Way of the Greater Miss-Lou raise funds to support local agencies that serve persons and families who are economically vulnerable. We are most grateful for our golf tourney sponsorships such as Southwest Distributors, Trace City Toyota and others. Your support is greatly appreciated, and we thank all other local businesses that are sponsoring teams, donating door prizes and making significant dollar donations.

But we urge others to join; it’s not too late!

Here are the golf tourney details: Platinum sponsorship is $700 and includes the closing reception and hole sponsorship, plus fielding a four-person team. Hole sponsorships are $100. Individuals can enter the scramble for $125. This entry fee covers lunch, green and cart fees, range balls and the closing reception. Individual players will be assigned a team on which to play. Mulligans may be purchased at $20 each, and there will be a ball drop.

This is a great way to give your organization marketing visibility while helping a worthy cause.

The day begins with lunch being served from 11 a.m. until the 1 p.m. shotgun start. At the end of the scramble, there will be an awards reception with refreshments and prizes for categories such as best team score, longest drive, closest to the hole, and a vehicle for the first golfer who manages a hole-in-one. Believe us, there will be plenty of door prizes.

Remember, the United Way golf scramble supports the agency’s purpose to develop a strong volunteer-driven organization that champions effective donor-based programs that enhance the quality of life of all residents of the Miss-Lou. Our goal is to move them from dependency to productivity, thus becoming contributing members of society. The United Way also supports programs that enhance the quality of life in the area, such as recreation for youth, emergency preparedness for all, counseling and transportation for the aging and other social and health services.
