Somerville, Mass. (August 16, 2011) – Get those golf clubs out of the closet and join the Somerville Homeless Coalition for their 9th Annual Golf Tournament, sponsored by The Queally Waxman Group of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney. This year’s tournament will be held at the Sandy Burr Country Club in Wayland, Mass, September 15th. Golfers can check-in the day of the event at 10a.m., followed by lunch. Shotgun start will be at 11a.m. The event will feature an 18-hole scramble, prizes, dinner reception, as well as a “Best of Day” awards ceremony. All proceeds will benefit the non-profit organization and the programs and services it provides to the homeless and near-homeless in Somerville and the Greater Boston area.
The cost to participate is $150 per person or $600 for a four-person team. Participants can sign-up as an individual, or in two, three or four person groups. Event sponsorships are also available for businesses, starting at $150. A sponsorship guarantees the participating organization visibility to up to 144 golfers, exposure to visitors on the official SHC website, and mention in the newsletter and annual report.
“The annual golf tournament is one of the ways we raise the necessary funds to support our work,” said Mark Alston-Follansbee, Executive Director of the SHC. “We are so grateful for all the community support we receive. Working together we do make a difference in the lives of families and individuals we serve.”
