The Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield will hold their 4th Annual Golf Tournament on June 26, 2009 at Crosswinds Golf Club, 424 Long Pond Rd. in Plymouth. Registration starts at 11 a.m. Tee-off is at 12 p.m.
The Boys and Girls Club’s exciting Annual Golf Tournament has drawn past participants such as the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals Sean Morey (who is a Marshfield native). Morey is both a recent Super Bowl champ and Pro Bowler. This year’s tournament is sponsored by Marshfield’s “Citizens of the Year” Jack and Beth Griffin of Buythecase.net (Pembroke) who will be playing in the tournament. Other “local celebs” playing include Selectman Michael Maresco, Police Chief Bill Sullivan, Fire Chief Kevin Robinson and Pat Roche, founder of Roche Bros. along with his sons.
Tickets are $150 per person or $600 for a foursome and are on sale now at the Boys and Girls Club in Library Plaza and online at www.marshfieldboysandgirlsclub.com. Registration may be done online or at the Boys and Girls Club. Every foursome receives free use of a golf cart, goody bags and a commemorative framed photo of themselves at the tournament.
Hole sponsorships are available for $150. Raffle and silent auction donations are needed. Those interested should contact the Boys and Girls Club directly.
According to Greg Jackson, Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club in Marshfield, “Last year we raised over $25,000 from registration, fees, sponsorships and from the auction items. This year we’d like to top it.”
All players will receive a box lunch. Golfers will be entertained by the “Village People” who will be selling raffle tickets to players. An awards dinner will be held at Crosswinds after the event and prizes will be given for “Closest to the Pin” and “Longest Drive”. There is also the possibility of winning a new car from Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac of Plymouth with a Hole-in-One. Restaurant gift certificates, golf items and sports memorabilia will be offered through a Silent Auction and raffles will held.
For those who are unable to attend the golf tournament, but would like to attend the dinner, a $50 donation is asked.
