It’s time to hit the links for a good cause

20 May

‘Tis the season for golf, apparently, and for those of you who enjoy hitting the links for a good cause, there are several opportunities coming up in the near future to do that. I’d like to tell you about three of them today.

This first one has my favorite name for a golf tournament ever, the RobynPalooza, scheduled for June 16. It’s named after Robyn Whittaker, who first organized this benefit tournament 12 years ago in honor of her 50th birthday. For the last several years the Webster Rotary has been helping out, and the collaboration has had tremendous success raising money for local charities.

Robyn reports that last year was their biggest year ever, netting $17,000. She hopes to top $20,000 this year, but as the date approaches she’s afraid they might fall short. So now’s the time to step up and help out. There’s still plenty of time to pull together your foursome to play, but there are also plenty of opportunities for businesses to sponsor holes and carts, and prizes for achievements like closest to the pin and longest drive.

Sponsorships are just $100, and can be combined with your foursome registration. Registration for players is $480 per foursome, or $125 for individuals. Dinner only will cost $35.

Proceeds from this year’s RobynPalooza will benefit the Webster Library BookBox, Human Kindness Organization, Open Door Mission, Adopt a Platoon, and other causes.

The event is scheduled for Friday June 16 at Morgan’s Crossing Golf Club (Chili Country Club). Registration begins at 11 a.m. with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. For more information about the tournament and how to sign up, click on the image below.

Next Friday May 26, the Christopher’s Challenge Golf Tournament takes place at Mill Creek Golf Club in Churchville.

Even though the tournament is just around the corner, there’s still time to sign up to play and/or sponsor a golf cart, putting green, driving range or hole. Sponsorships range from $105 to $1,000. Cost to play is $100 for individual golfers, $400 for a foursome. If you’d just like to come for dinner alone, that will cost $35.

Proceeds will benefit Christopher’s Challenge, a not-for-profit organization established in 1998 to educate about bone marrow transplants and draw awareness to become a potential bone marrow donor, as well as financially supporting patients and their families going through bone marrow transplant procedures.

Registration begins at noon with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. To register, click here or call Kathy Costello at (585) 414-5345.

Have you ever wanted to play Oak Hill? Your chance to do that happens Monday July 24, during the CDS Wolf Foundation’s 36th annual A Salute to Veterans Golf Tournament.

This is one of Rochester’s leading and most respected charitable golf events. Sponsorships range from $7,500 to $50,000. Foursomes can sign up for $7,500 to play the East Course and $5,000 to play the West Course (with discounts applied if paid in full by May 31). Other opportunities include a driving range sign for $2,500, a tee sign for $1,000 and a dinner and concert ticket for $500.

The tournament will begin with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. on the East Course, and at 1:30 with shotgun starts on both the East and West courses. For more information and to register, click here.
