The Onslow Caring Communities Foundation has opened registration for its 11th annual New Year's Day golf tournament at the Jacksonville Country Club.
The Onslow Caring Communities Foundation has made more than $168,000 in grants to local nonprofits. The annual superball format tournament is the Foundation's primary fundraising event.
"The players always have a great time at this tournament," said Steve Wangerin, President of the Onslow Caring Communities Foundation. "The weather is usually good, and everyone is ready to get outside after all the holiday events and parties."
"Playing in a charity golf tournament is a great way to start the year and to try out those new gift clubs," Wangerin said.
The $300 entry fee for a four-person team includes breakfast provided by Golden Corral, free refreshments on the course and lunch. Each player gets one mulligan and one tee-buster, and tournament offers cash prizes to the top three teams.
To register for the tournament, please contact Budda Howard, 910-346-7332, or Steve Wangerin, 910-455-3555. The team registration deadline is Friday, December 28. Click here for a registration form.
