This year’s Perry Kiwanis golf outing will, for the first time, offer players the opportunity to purchase “Super Tickets.” Each $25 ticket will provide four mulligans, one skirt, one putting contest entry and one raffle ticket for a seven-day stay during 2021 in the winner’s choice of 150 Wyndham timeshare properties, based on availability.
The fifth annual fundraiser will be held Thursday, June 18, at 1 p.m. at Smock Golf Course, County Line Road at Sherman Drive. It will help Kiwanis support the Hunger Inc. food pantry, college scholarships and back-to-school supplies. Best practices for personal safety will be followed.
Again this year, Kiwanis is holding the line on prices and offering golfers the opportunity to pay
with credit card, cash or check. Golf is $300 per foursome and $75 per player (single golfers are
encouraged and will be matched with open foursomes).
The winning foursome gets a plaque and rounds of golf. Registration includes a box lunch at
noon, a round of golf, cart, unlimited practice balls and beverages on the course (including beer).
Water and soft drinks will be donated by Kiwanis.
Sponsorships are also available. Hole sponsorships are $400 with a deadline of June 13, and each
sponsorship includes four rounds of golf and four Super Tickets. Beverage cart sponsorships are
limited to two and cost $750 each. With their registration, players have the opportunity to make a
donation to Perry Kiwanis to help the organization support the community.
