“The best thing about a scramble format is that it is a quicker paced tournament and allows for golfers at every level to participate,” said Carrie Redman, Event Chairperson. Ms. Redman continued, “The tournament is almost full, but we are still looking for two more teams and accepting donations from local businesses who would like to sponsor our event.”
This year’s Tournament Sponsors are Allegany Co-op Insurance Company and Update Pharmacy. Other sponsors include Otis Eastern Service LLC, ComTon Inc., Bonadio & Co. LLP, Steuben Trust Company, Acme Business Machines, Dr. Robert Maiden, Hodgson Russ LLP, Steuben Trust Company and The L.C. Whitford Co. Inc.
There will be four hole-in-one prize holes; Hole 11 ($500 cash), Hole 14 ($500 cash), Hole 18 ($500 cash) and Hole 3 ($10,000 cash). Friends of Allegany Arc is very excited to have such great prizes available for this year’s golfers.
The cost of the tournament is $60.00 and includes a cart, 18 holes of golf, beverages, and dinner.“The Friends Summer Scramble is a very fun and beneficial fundraiser,” said Redman. “Event proceeds go directly toward opportunities for people with special needs. Last year’s tournament allowed the Friends Foundation to assist with the purchase of a sensory swing for an individual in need, sensory pillows for our DayHab program, practice jerseys and uniforms for Allegany County’s Special Olympics Teams, and much more.”
