VFW GOLF OUTING PRESS RELEASE
KNOLL RUN – On June 26th, VFW District 8 will storm the green at Knoll Run Golf Course in Lowellville, OH for its 10thAnnual Golf Scramble, with proceeds to benefit the Combs/Comedy/Bentfeld Cancer Fund. The Annual Golf Scramble has raised over $25,000 for the cancer fund, and VFW District 8 needs your help again.
We all know someone that has been affected by cancer. It is such a deadly disease, and by raising money for our cancer fund, together, we can make a difference! We need teams of four (men and women) and hole sponsors. For the teams, the outing will consist of 18 holes of golf with a cart, coffee and donuts, hot dogs at the turn, and a grilled-to-order steak dinner with socially-distanced seating at Knoll Run Golf Course Pavilion.
Prizes will pay out to one of every three teams. As an example, there will be eight place winners if 24 teams register. 1stplace walks away with $320, and each subsequent place will drop by $20, but never below $200. If there are 24 teams playing, 7th and 8thplace will receive $200. There will also be prizes for two long drives, two closest to pin on the first shot, two closest to pin on the second shot, one longest putt, one shortest putt, and some optional "pay-as-you-go” games throughout the day. The entry fee for a team of four is $80 per person or $320 for the team. Hole sponsors are $100.
