Hospice of the Rap­i­dan will host its 2011 Char­ity Golf Out­ing Mon­day, June 13 at Fauquier Springs Coun­try Club in War­ren­ton. Nearly 100 golfers par­tic­i­pated in last year’s event, which raised more than $ 15,000.

Each en­try in­cludes greens fees, cart, a gift bag, lunch and on course bev­er­ages. A copy of the tour­na­ment brochure which in­cludes an en­try form is avail­able on Hospice of the Rap­i­dan’s Web site at hotr. org.

The tour­na­ment also in­cludes raf­fle prizes and sev­eral con­tests. One high­light of this year’s tour­na­ment is a hole-in-one prize of a 2011 Har­ley-David­son mo­tor­cy­cle spon­sored by Waugh En­ter­prises of Orange County.
