Golfing for a Cause…
Castleton Community Center Golf Outing
The 14th annual Castleton Community Center Golf Outing will be held on Friday, September 14, at Lake Saint Catherine Country Club. The event will benefit the Castleton Community Center’s transportation program, which provides elderly and disabled citizens with the chance to stay in their homes and allowing them to remain independent. Over 2,800 rides were provided to folks last year for essential travel to doctor’s appointments, nursing home visits, therapy, adult day care and senior meals.
The Golf Outing features 18 holes of golf in a Captain and Crew format, with a $10,000 hole-in-one-contest and prizes for low gross, low net, longest drive and closet to pin for both men and women. This year’s event is in memory of Jeff Larson and his many contributions to the community. The $90 registration fee includes greens fee, golf cart, dinner, gifts, raffles and prizes. To register, you can call 802-468-3093 or go to the website at castletncsi.org .
