The ladies of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 136, Pine Island, will hold their annual golf outing, also known as the Hole in One Contest, Feb. 22. This very successful event has proven in previous years to be a wonderful way of raising money to help veterans on Pine Island.
The event will be set up by the pond at the American Legion providing individuals the opportunity to hit the golf ball over the water to the green. The first tee time is at 10 a.m. and the last tee off at 4:45 p.m. The fee for the first shot is $5 and additional shots (mulligans) are $1 each. Top prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, closest to the pin.
There will be a 50/50 drawing as well as raffle drawings for the many prizes donated by businesses on and off the island.
In addition to golf, hamburgers and hot dogs will be served from noon - 4 p.m. Barbecue chicken along with homemade dishes of potato salad, macaroni salad, cole slaw and baked beans prepared by the women of the Auxiliary will be served from 5-7 p.m.
The event will also feature music by Smalltown from 1-4 p.m. and David Deane from 5-8 p.m.
All money raised at the event goes directly to Veteran's programs. Golfers, spectators and the public are invited to come out and enjoy the day.
