Golfers of all ability levels are encouraged to sign up soon for the March 16 Noah Smith Benefit Golf Tournament at Indian Creek.
Nearly 100 golfers are expected to join the fun, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Noah Smith Rehabilitation Fund, supporting the local college student who was accidentally paralyzed in December 2002.
The format is a four-person, nine-hole scramble, but people can sign up as a team of three, two or even one.
“It’s open to anyone,” said John Garcia, who is helping organize the event along with his wife, Lynn, and Indian Creek. “It’s going to be a fun day, and it’s for a great cause.”
The total cost, including greens fees, a shared cart and a post-tournament meal is $35. March 13 is the registration deadline, and people are urged to call the Garcias as soon as possible at 386-6450.
Play will begin at 1 p.m. and last until approximately 4 p.m. A soup/ sandwich buffet will begin at around 4 p.m. and will eventually give way to a live auction in which a long list of items will be up for bid. A silent auction will also be taking place throughout the day, beginning at noon and lasting until 5 p.m.
Items to be auctioned off include a brand-new Nike driver, an Oakley carry bag, an assortment of other top brands of clubs, an Indian Creek membership initiation fee, various sports memorabilia and so on.
People who would like to attend only the meal and auction portions are asked to pay $10. If you would like more information, contact the Garcias at 386-6450 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
