Rotary Golf Tournament to Support Global Health

The Mad River Valley Rotary celebrates Spring by hosting its 6th Annual MAD RIVER VALLEY GOLF TOURNAMENT.  The event will held on Saturday, June 17, 2016 (Father’s Day Weekend) at the Sugarbush Resort Golf Club.  Friends and family are welcome to join us for a day of great golf and fun events.  Registration will start at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10:00 a.m.

This year 100% of the Tournament’s net proceeds will be donated to Global Health Media Project of Waitsfield, VT (www.globalhealthmedia.org).  The non-profit is a leader in the development and distribution of lifesaving teaching videos for health care workers worldwide.

The Mad River Valley Rotary Club is pleased to announce that the day’s activities are being supported by Cabot Creamery, Jamieson Insurance, Paige & Campbell, Mehuron’s Market, Suburban Propane, and Sugarbush Realty.

The tournament will be played in an 18-hole scramble format.  Longest Drive, Hole-in-One, and Closest to the Pin will be offered along with a practice range and putting.  Mulligans will be available, and a pro from Sugarbush Resort Golf Club will hit one of your drives, each for a modest additional contribution.  Following the tournament, awards and raffle prizes will be given out at the awards reception.

This is an opportunity to enjoy the festivities while, at the same time, helping to send the message that we all have a responsibility to promote health and wellness throughout the world.  Global Health Media Project has produced over 90 videos—available in nearly 50 languages—that teach basic health practices in a way that is easy to understand and follow.   These videos are free of charge for frontline health care workers and caregivers, and can be downloaded for offline use in areas where Internet connectivity is limited. Help the Mad River Rotary support this local organization with its astounding mission and worldwide reach.

We encourage you to sign up early as registration is limited to the first 32 teams. You may sign up as a team ($400) or as an individual ($100).  The entry fee for Sugarbush Golf Club Passholders is only $70, a $30 discount.  

Hole Sponsorships are also available at $100.

The Mad River Valley Rotary Club extends its thanks to our community for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at this special event on Saturday, June 17th!
