26/05/2014 - Calling Local Golfers - can you help Ascot Rotary Club?

 

The Rotary Club of Ascot is calling for the support of local golfers to join in the annual Charity Golf Day on Friday the 12th of September at Mill Ride Golf Club. This well-known local event has now been running for over 10 years, and is one of the fun ways that the Rotary Club raises money to support its work in the community it serves. This year our partner charity is the Children with Special Needs Foundation, and that organisation will receive 50% of the proceeds of the event.

The day begins with an optional “friendly” 9-hole practice round, then after a break for refreshments the main 18-hole competition takes place. There will be team and individual prizes for the best scores, as well as special prizes for the longest drive and the drive which gets nearest the pin. In the evening the gala dinner will include the prize presentation, a charity auction, a raffle and more.

The Rotary Club of Ascot typically raises and spends in the order of 25,000 per year, and the Charity Golf Day is not only an enjoyable day out for golfers, it contributes significantly to the fundraising budget. Entry is by teams of 4, and the price for the day including the golf rounds and evening meal is just 75 per player (300 per team). If you would like to enter a team of four please contact our team coordinator John Baker on 01344 425440, or fill in the form on our website www.rotaryascot.org/golf
