9-Hole Scramble Saturday to Benefit Sick Kids
Golfers looking to play on Saturday should consider taking part in this 9-Hole Scramble. It features golf, lunch, awesome prizes, and a chance to help brighten the lives of ill children!
The event is being held Saturday at the Kenduskeag Golf and Country Club, with tee times beginning at 8 a.m. There will be prizes awarded for several categories including Longest Drive for men and women, Nearest the pin for men and women, and more!
Raffle drawings will be held throughout the day, with prizes like 2 Waterfront Concert tickets, a night's stay for two at the Bangor Holiday Inn, and dinner for two at the Seadog. That's ONE prize! Or, you could win an outdoor fireplace, donated by Genest Concrete. Or how about 2 tickets to the Red Sox vs. Orioles game?!
Of course, every golf tournament has to have a hole-in-one prize, right? This time around it's furniture. $10,000 worth of furniture from Tuffy Bear!
Proceeds from the day will benefit the Brianna Rachel Fund for Kids. The idea for this wonderful organization came from a little girl who was dying. She told her family and friends she wanted them to find ways to brighten the lives of others in her position. So the money goes toward holding birthday parties, Halloween parties, Christmas parties, and more in pediatric wings and children's hospitals. They even hold parties at home for some of the kids!
Brianna's grandmother told me that they'll be set up at the golf course until 5 or 6 at night so, even if you haven't registered, if you still want to stop by to play, by all means do it! Or maybe just stop by to make a donation. Here's hoping they have beautiful weather for this wonderful cause!
