Attention golfers: Tee It Up for Community Caregivers

It’s time to Tee It Up for Community Caregivers. The group is hosting its 10th annual golf tournament on Monday, June 16, at Orchard Creek Golf Club in Altamont. This year is extra special because the organization is also celebrating its 20th anniversary — two decades of Neighbors Helping Neighbors.

The format for the tourney is a scramble with men’s, mixed, and women’s divisions. Professional Golfers’ Association professional Scott Brennan will once again be showing off his golfing skills in a game called “Beat the Pro.”

Other contests include longest drive and closest to the pin for both men and women. And Orange Motors, Northway Golf Center, and Price Chopper are sponsoring hole-in-one prizes.

There will be drawn prizes and a live auction. This year’s auction will feature a spot in a foursome at the Alumni and Friends Pro-Am Golf Tournament (July 21 at Normanside Country Club). Each foursome will be partnered with a Symetra tour pro.

Also in the live auction is a week at a beachside penthouse in Aruba and various gift certificates to some of the top private and public courses in the area. There will also be autographed collages or pictures of Arnold Palmer, Eli Manning, Rob Guidry, and Yankees legends. All photographs come with certificates of authenticity.

A big thank you to this year’s sponsors: Adirondack Environmental Services, Inc., State Employees’ Federal Credit Union, Blasch Precision Ceramics, Wells Fargo Advisors, and Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America.

There will be a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m.; registration starts at 7:30 a.m. Cost per player is $140, which includes golf, cart, box lunch, cocktail hour, and a delicious chicken and rib dinner.

The golf outing is one of Community Caregivers’ two annual fund-raising events. All proceeds go directly to support our mission — to provide nonmedical volunteer services to individuals of all ages so they can remain in their homes and maintain their independence, dignity, and quality of life.
