Golfers sought for new benefit tournament
Monitor Staff Reports
KEMP–A new golf tournament set Monday, June 18, at the Cedar Creek Country Club will benefit a proposed new Kaufman County Children’s Advocacy Center.
The Kaufman Economic Development Corporation is seeking to raise $30,000 to match with a $30,000 grant.
The need for an advocacy center has been endorsed by all county judges, the district attorney, the Public Defender’s Office, the county justices of the peace, the sheriff and most law enforcement agencies, as well as many county religious leaders.
Golfers will be allowed to choose one of two formats when they sign up – either a traditional scramble or stroke play.
Under the stroke play format, golfers from each Kaufman County city/community will play against each other – Kaufman vs. Forney vs. Mabank vs. Kemp vs. Scurry/Rosser vs. Terrell.
Each city will be allowed as many golfers as sign up, and each golfer plays his/her ball.
Lowest scores will be registered for each city on each hole, and then compared. The winning city will secure the new Kaufman County Cup, now being designed by Michelle Joseph of Crandall.
Hole sponsors and other sponsors are being sought. A $1,000 sponsorship (lunch or hat) will include registration for four golfers and signs.
A major sponsor ($500) will include registration for four golfers and two holes, while a hole-sponsor sign is $100.
Each four-player team fee is $280, with a two-player team $150. Individual golfers may register for $85.
Kaufman EDC Executive Director Lee Ayers is the committee chair. For more information, contact Ayers at (972) 932-5332. For signup forms, stop by the Kaufman Chamber of Commerce office at 2100 S. Washington St. in Kaufman, or call (972) 932-3118.
