Adirondack Bank Charity Golf Classic organizers expect to award nearly $36,000 to area organizations following this year’s golf tournament, scheduled for Monday, June 11, at the Thendara Golf Club. About 200 golfers are expected to participate this year’s tournament.
The following organizations have each been selected to receive a portion of the proceeds from the annual event: the Home Aide Service of the Central Adirondacks, Central Adirondack Partnership for the 21st Century (CAP-21), Kommunity Youth Activity Center (KYAC), Kamp Kiwanis, The Town of Webb Historical Association, The Ronald McDonald House, the Kelberman Center for Autism at UCP, and the Resource Center for Independent Living.
The deadline to enter the tournament is June 4. Many morning flights and a few afternoon flights are still available. Participants will play in groups of four. If you do not have a full group, you will be placed with others. Walk-ins who have not registered will be accommodated in the morning if space allows.
The entry fee is $100 per player and includes an 18-hole greens fee, cart, golfer gifts, putting contest, breakfast or lunch depending on tee time, beverage on course, and one dinner. Dinner will be served at about 5:30 p.m. Non-golfers may join the dinner for $50.
There will be door prizes and a raffle with loads of prizes including a flatscreen TV, an iPad, a kayak, adirondack chairs, and more. Local business have contributed dozens of prizes and gift certificates for the event.
