Shot­gun/vegas golf to ben­e­fit CAB

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Or­ga­niz­er­sare pre­par­ing, for the third year in a row, one of the most fun lo­cal golf tour­na­ments: the An­nual Shot­gun/ Vegas Golf Tour­na­ment to ben­e­fit the RH Rediker vol­un­teer cen­ter (CAB), tak­ing place at the Duf­ferin Heights Golf Club on June 14th. In 2012, $11,000 was raised through the tour­na­ment for this lo­cal re­source which pro­vides much-needed ser­vices to chil­dren, adults and se­niors.

“A Shot­gun/Vegas tour­na­ment means ev­ery­one starts at the same time but at dif­fer­ent holes,” ex­plained Robert Galazzo who or­ga­nizes the tour­na­ment along with An­dré Gaulin and Arthur LaPenna. Spe­cial hole spon­sors add even more ex­cite­ment to the event. The IGA An­dre Roy and Fam­ily have spon­sored hole # 14, promis­ing $5000 in gro­ceries to the first per­son to make a hole-in-one. Hole # 4 is spon­sored by Camp­bell & Bel­lam In­sur­ance who will give $20,000 for a hole-in-one. At hole # 7, who­ever lands clos­est to the pin will re­ceive some bot­tles of wine.

The tour­na­ment in­cludes the 18 hole course, a cart, and a de­li­cious me­choui meal. Non-golfers can at­tend just the meal but must also re­serve ahead. Dur­ing the meal, there will be a draw­ing for a 40 inch tele­vi­sion set. Peo­ple can buy raf­fle tick­ets ahead of time for the TV at the CAB RH Rediker, at the Duf­ferin Heights Golf Club, and from or­ga­niz­ers. “We’ll have prizes for ev­ery golfer.”

Four­somes who would like to play and spon­sors of the tour­na­ment have un­til May 31st to reg­is­ter. “We need time to make the signs of our spon­sors to put up along the course,” said Mr. Galazzo.

Do­na­tion re­ceipts for in­come tax pur­poses are avail­able for golfers in the amount of $40 per per­son. For more in­for­ma­tion, to be­come a spon­sor or to re­serve a spot in the tour­na­ment or at the meal, call ei­ther Robert Galazzo (876-2505), An­dré Gaulin (8767282)or Arthur LaPenna (8762941).
