Registration is open for the YMCA of the Northwoods 11th Annual “Y Scramble” golf event.
In addition to the YMCA, the event is sponsored by One Prospect, Ministry Heath Care, The Toy Shop of Eagle River, The Hodag Buyers Guide and Star Journal, Pinewood Country Club, and WalMart.
The four-person best ball scramble takes place Friday July 22, 2011 at Pinewood Country Club. The entry fee is $85 per person, and includes 18 holes, cart, lunch, and dinner.
The event includes lucrative hole-in-one awards, including a 2011 Chevy Cruise from Rhinelander GM and $2000 gift certificate from Wickersham Jewelry. Auction items include a yellow and black 49.9 CC American Lifan Scooter donated by the Toy Shop of Eagle River, a custom designed pennant by Wickersham Jewelry, cash and miscellaneous door prizes provided by local businesses and organizations.
“We are grateful to the area businesses and volunteers who make this event successful,” says Laurie Schlitt, YMCA Interim Executive Director. “The funds raised at this event allow the YMCA of the
Northwoods to subsidize membership and programming. These subsidies present an opportunity to those that could not afford to participate in all of our wonderful activities.”
Once again the big attraction is the helicopter golf ball drop with the chance of winning $3000. Up to 600 golf balls will be dropped from a helicopter onto the golf course and the numbered ball closest to the pin will win the 50/50 pot. The other half is donated to the Strong Kids Campaign. 2nd place prize will be an Annual YMCA Family Membership and 3rd place prize an Annual YMCA Adult Membership. Golf ball drop tickets are on sale at the YMCA of the Northwoods and Pinewood Country Club for only $10 per ball; need not be present to win.
All proceeds go to the YMCA’s Strong Kids campaign a financial assistance program which allows children to participate in YMCA programs who could not otherwise afford to do so.
To register or for more information, call the YMCA at 715-362-9622. Register by July 1, 2011 to receive a free golf ball drop ticket.
