The Greater Hawkins Veterans Memorial Association Annual Benefit Golf Tournament is a 6-person mixed scramble and last year we had over one hundred and sixty players participating. This is the major fund raising event for the Memorial and we depend on entry fees and donations to make the tournament a success. Businesses, organizations and individuals may be a hole sponsor for $100. For this donation, we place a sign with their name on a tee box, so the public can see who sponsors the Veterans and the Memorial.
Besides the usual hole sponsorship for $100, we have added the option that the first 14 Hole Sponsors, who chose to pay $150, will have their logo or name flying on one of the holes. Their “flag” will be on the pin rather than the usual flag that is on it.
All the money goes to the Memorial, none to the golf club. About four years ago, the HLRA Board of Directors decided to have all of the funds go to the Memorial. For some special tournaments, a small percentage goes back to the golf club. The tournament is played on a Tuesday, which is a day off for some of the employees who maintain the golf course or work in the Pro Shop. That is why usually some money goes back to the pro shop, but again not for the Vets tournament.
We appreciate your support of our ongoing efforts to provide the improvements and upkeep necessary to the Memorial Park to provide a beautiful setting which the surrounding community can remember and honor its Veterans by sponsoring a hole.
