Salute Our Vets Golf Tournament

Fred Garmeson

The annual Salute Our Veterans Golf Tournament sponsored by the SunBird Lions Club and the Lions Foundation of Arizona will be held on November 15. There will be a 7:00 a.m. check in and an 8:00 a.m. shotgun start. The format is a four person scramble. There will be a $10,000 prize for all holes-in-one on Hole No. 3 and additional hole-in-one prizes on the other par three holes. There will also be prizes for gross and net winners in each flight, longest putt and closest-to-the-pin for both men and women. The price is $50 per player and, of course, includes coffee and donuts at check-in and lunch following golf. Applications are available outside the Pro Shop or from Fred Garmeson at 895-9363.

Please bring a donation for the Packages from Home project. Desired items include white socks, hard candy (no chocolates), gum, paperback books and hand held games, just to name a few.

Commercial hole sponsorships are available for $100. Individual veterans, family members and friends can be honored with a $50 hole sponsorship. Make all checks payable to Chandler SunBird Lions Charities; all donations are tax deductable.
