For Immediate Release
Early Bird Registration is now open for Copley Hospital’s annual golf tournament – the 26th Copley Golf Scramble. Your $99 early bird registration includes morning refreshments, 18 holes of scramble format golf, barbecue luncheon, awards ceremony and a tax deductible donation to Copley. This year’s outing will be held Saturday July 13th at the Copley Country Club in Morrisville. The Scramble is a key fundraiser for the hospital, raising more than $15,000 for Copley last year. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit Copley’s Charitable Care Program, a program that last year provided nearly $1 million in charity care. Copley thanks presenting sponsor MVP Healthcare along with Hackett Valine & MacDonald, Union Bank, and Pepsi Bottling Ventures for their assistance with the Scramble. You can register online at copleyvt.org/givingtocopley or print off the early bird registration form and mail it in with your payment.
The 18 hole tournament is for golfers of all levels and experience. Copley Foundation committee chair Polly Manosh spearheads the event. Manosh says that the scramble format used keeps the playing field even ensuring that every team has an even chance at winning.
In addition to prizes for the lowest overall team score, prizes will be awarded for the 1st hole-in-one on the 14th hole and all par 3s, courtesy of McMahon’s Chevrolet. Specialty prizes awarded to the longest drive and nearest to the pin are courtesy of area businesses.
Player fees range from $99 early bird special to $125 after May 31st. Sponsorship packages include one or more players. To register for the Copley Scramble, call Jill Baker at 888-8302 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s FORE a good cause!
