We Care Community Services Has Golf Tournament April 30

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

The 2014 Charity Golf Tournament will be held April 30 at Dayton Golf & Country Club to raise money for We Care Community Services, which helps people in Rhea County.

The entry fee is $60 or $240 for a team of four. It includes lunch, cart and green fees. Proceeds will stay in Rhea County and benefit We Care, a nonprofit agency that feeds the hungry and cares for displaced youths, mentally ill and homeless people in Rhea County. 

“This tournament is a great way to support an area of need in Rhea County while at the same time enjoying a great round of golf,” said Gary Venice, a volunteer member of the board of directors of We Care. 

Lunch will be served from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.; registration is at 11:30 a.m. The format calls for four persons, select shot.  Prizes will be awarded to the teams finishing first, fourth and seventh, golfers who hit the longest shot or get closest to the pin. Mulligans will cost $5. The putting contest will cost $5 for three balls.

The cost to sponsor a hole is $60; for $280 a person can sponsor a hole and a four-player team. 

Dayton Golf & Country Club, which includes an 18-hole golf course, practice green and range, is at 315 Payne Lane, Evensville, TN.
