This year’s annual Burin Peninsula Health Care Foundation’s charity golf tournament is coinciding with the 25th annual of the health care centre in Burin.
The daylong event is scheduled for the Grande Meadows Golf Course in Frenchman’s Cove this Saturday.
Extra activities are planned to mark the anniversary. There will be
onsite and course contests with live entertainment, barbecue and special events, including a Club House Party at 6 p.m. open to public.
An Online Auction is now open for public bidding. Visit: ‘www.burinpeninsulahealthcarefoundation.com’, click on online auction, register the view and bid -right up to Sept. 28.
An Early Bird Draw is being held for pledge sheets and funds raised and submitted to the BPHCF office by 12 noon Thursday, Sept. 5.
To ensure registered players receive updated information and announcements, online auction updates, tee time confirmation, participants are asked to confirm cur- rent contact information by emailing or calling the Foundation office.
In recognition of 25th Anniversary Celebrations this year’s players’ gift will be a 25th Anniversary Golf Polo; the brief closing ceremonies at 6 p.m. will feature drawing of players’ door prize, special draws and course contest winners’ announcements. Individual team photos and an overall group photo taken on the greens to mark the anniversary will be available.
It’s important all registered players arrive/register and be ready to play half hour prior to scheduled tee time.
This year, R & E Transportation will provide bus transportation from Clubhouse to Burin-Marystown, with stops on main entrances along the way. Participants are asked to advise at registration if they will be travelling home with R & E.
The Burin Peninsula Health Care Foundation Board acknowledges the many individuals who have supported the Foundation’s efforts over the past 25 years – without your help, our successes would be limited.
