JGH is preparing for its second Annual Summer Scramble Golf Tournament Fundraiser to be held at Greenhills Country Club on Saturday, June 23. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. and start time is at 10:00am~event is followed by a picnic provided by JGH. Last year’s event was directed by Past-Foundation Board President, Dick Ledford, who did a fabulous job with the fundraiser. This year’s director and marketing/pr director, Rhonda Davis says, “I have some big shoes to fill this year, but I hope that this event exceeds last year’s in terms of participation and funds raised.” Everett from Greenhills is a wealth of knowledge and offers unlimited assistance for this event. We are also very fortunate to have been chosen as a Charity Challenge Matching Grant Funds participant through the Jackson County Community Foundation.
This will allow the money we raise to go a lot further as we work to increase the awareness and provide education to our community on the many dangers of drugs .”
The event is a four-person, shotgun start scramble, which allows the team to play off the best shot. There will be mulligans and skins sold the morning of the event and Matheny Motors will be present during registration to give away a Callaway Gift Card (activated with a test drive). There are wonderful registration bags with loads of goodies including t-shirts from Athletic Outfitters and WV Power Baseball Tickets. Other great prizes will be given away for the longest drive, longest made putt, closest to the hole and hole in one. This year’s hole-in-one prize is a 2012 Buick Verano! Some of the other great prizes include 4 all-week passes to this year’s sold-out Greenbrier Classic Golf Tournament with concert tickets included (donated by WV Radio Corporation), gift baskets, gift cards, outdoor items, and golf supplies.
We appreciate all the support for this year’s event, especially from our corporate sponsors: Matheny Motors, Vanguard Financial Services, New York Life, Drs. Layne & Myers, Felman Production, Jackson Newspapers, HealthSpring, Parkersburg Cardiology Associates, Frontier Communication, WMOV Radio, WesBanco, C-98 Radio, Wells Fargo Insurance, HealthSmart, WV Power Baseball, and WV Fine Photography~who will take memory pictures of your team. There’s still time to purchase a hole sign to promote yourself, your organization or business. Contact Rhonda Davis at 304-373-1597 for hole and corporate sponsorships.
