Annual benefit set for Sept. 11

Meals on Wheels hits the links to raise money
Players interested in the Meals on Wheels golf tournament Sept. 11 should quickly find some teammates and get their registration in because spots are going quick.
Today is the last day to register online and at a discount for the 21st Annual Golf Benefit at Hidden Creek Golf Course in Burleson, hosted by Meals on Wheels and title sponsor Community Bank. The 7:30 a.m. tee times are already full, but others are open for 1:30 p.m.
Competitors can register online to play. The entry fee of $100 per golfer includes green fees, half of a cart fee, a T-shirt, cold drinks and food throughout the day.
Online registration will close following the Aug. 22 deadline, but players and teams can still sign up by calling the Meals on Wheels offices. Prices will go up after the Aug. 22 deadline to $125 per golfer and $500 per team.
Registrations are accepted on a “first come, first serve” basis and teams cannot be held without payment. Golfers can also download a registration form at www.servingthechildrenofyesterday.org.
“Please mark your calendars for this event. It is the largest event for our organization raising monies and bringing awareness about our services to the community,” said Vinsen Faris, executive director.
Sponsorships are available ranging from $250 to $2,000.
A raffle will be held in conjunction with the tournament at the end of the day. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20. You do not have to be present to win and prizes include Southwest airline tickets, sporting event tickets to NASCAR, the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Mavericks, IBM laptop, Cats Broadway Musical tickets for Bass Hall, gift certificates and much more.
“This event each year is a lot of fun, and a great opportunity to include the community in what we are doing to serve the homebound,” Faris said.
“We would love to make our goal of $75,000,” Amy Jackson said. “We are on track to make that. The monies raised directly benefit those we serve throughout Johnson & Ellis counties.”
For more information or to purchase raffle tickets contact Amy Jackson at amy@mowjec.org or call the Meals on Wheels offices at 817-558-2840 or 972-351-9943.
