Due to the great response I received to the Smoky Mountain Golf post, I thought I would take the time to tell you about another golf event that falls around Labor Day…I think it is a great idea for a great cause. On Wednesday, September 9, 2009, ERA In The Smokies Realty & Rentals will be sponsoring the 11th Annual ERA for MDA Golf Classic for Jerry’s Kids.
In the past ten years of the fundraising tournament, it has been a great time. I spent the day at the tournament last year and can say without hesitation…If you love golf, don’t miss this event. I’m volunteering again this year. Here’s the schedule for the day:
11. a.m. We’ll have a great lunch sponsored by the fine folks at Lineberger’s Seafood.
Noon. We’ll have a shotgun start.
5 p.m. After the tournament, we’ll have dinner provided by No Way Jose’s…and drinks
6 p.m. (ish) There is a great auction of donated items–everything from vacation packages & $2000 pickles (I’m not kidding) to oil changes and teddy bears. The auction is hosted by Marty Loveday & Associates who keeps everyone in stitches.
The entry fee is $100 per player & includes: Lunch, Green fees, Cart, an embroidered Golf Shirt, a Goody Bag, Dinner & all the Refreshments you can handle!
So put together a team or come alone, and they will pair you with other single players. If you are not able to come and play, your participation (by sponsoring a hole for only $100) is still greatly appreciated. Sponsoring a hole can give your business some GREAT ADVERTISING while doing something very worthwhile for the kids who suffer from Muscular Dystrophy.
If you need a place to stay for the event, call 1-800-309-0277 and tell them you want to come to Gatlinburg for the tournament–the folks at ERA In The Smokies will find the perfect place for you. See you there!
